ANABELLE MENDOZA - SLPA

Anabelle graduated with a BS in Speech Pathology at the University of the Philippines.  The course was very new to the country then so there were no real jobs for SLP’s at that time.  She ended up working as a Department Manager at the biggest department chain in the Philippines.

Feeling restless as usual, Anabelle made the move to CA where she worked as a Certified Medical Assistant for a few years.  CA is where she met her husband and had 2 boys who have kept her very busy until the present. He husband’s job then moved them to AZ where she was able to get back to Speech Pathology and come across IES.

Anabelle is happy to join the IES team.  She enjoys working with elementary school children and finds gratitude with the smallest progress achieved by each child from speech therapy.   Anabelle enjoys the theatre, film, traveling, and keeping in touch with friends and family. “Life is what you make of it.”
