Speech Therapist

Menie Pagomenakis is from Greece and spent her high school and college years in New York. She now owns an overseas Speech Therapy private practice in Dubai. Listen to learn how she started her clinic in the United Arab Emirates.


After Menie and I corresponded through email a few times about her private practice I had to get her on the podcast when I learned she was in Dubai. If you have a sense of adventure, Menie shares with us how to find a therapy job in Dubai.
