About Us

Mirlena Sanchez, M.S., CCC-SLP

Mirlena is a licensed/certified bilingual Speech-Language Pathologist with over 10 years of experience. Mirlena's passion for the field of speech and language pathology began in her native Puerto Rico, where she graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor's degree in Science, Speech and Language Therapy from the Carlos Albizu University. Her commitment to the field led her to the University of the District of Columbia, where she earned a Master of Science in Speech and Language Pathology, after being granted a full scholarship. Mirlena's clinical experience includes early intervention, language delays, articulation, feeding difficulty, apraxia, and social communication impairments for children with autism spectrum disorders. Additional training has been completed with the SOS Approach to Feeding and Pivotal Response Training (PRT) conferences. Her clinical experience is highlighted by the numerous professional memberships and certifications Mirlena has obtained, ranging from a Graduate Certificate in Special Education and Brain Injury from the George Washington University, a Graduate Certificate in Bilingual SLP, and Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology. She also holds a current Virginia Early Intervention Certification. Currently, Mirlena is enrolled in the ABA certificate program from George Mason University to pursue the BCBA certification. Outside of work, Mirlena loves spending time with her husband, 3 children and her dog.
