Education and Research Director

Mona first joined Listen and Talk in 2004 after completing a masters in Early Intervention in Deaf Education at Fontbonne University in St. Louis, MO.  In 2018, she completed her Ph.D. in Speech and Hearing Sciences at the University of Washington, where she studied infant hearing development.

Mona is passionate about Listen and Talk’s mission: that no child is limited by hearing loss. Her teaching practices are focused on the development of the whole child, with a special focus on auditory development as the foundation. Mona strongly believes that parents are the most important teachers of their children.

For fun, Mona likes to read a good novel or explore Seattle and the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her husband and two sons.
