Jayme is a Licensed, Certified, Clinical Speech-Language Pathologist through the American Speech-Language Hearing Association. She is also licensed by the Board of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology for the State of Virginia. She is currently a practicing Speech-Language Pathologist in the public schools serving preschoolers through 5th grade. Jayme has attended several trainings involving the Zones of Regulation and works with students who have Autism on learning how to regulate their emotions utilizing calming strategies to return to or maintain a “calm state.” Jayme has seen how Yoga benefits children when she worked in Autism classrooms in Arizona. It has always been her goal to incorporate yoga into her own life and the lives of children. She received her certification to teach Kids Yoga from Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) and is excited to begin incorporating Yoga through fun songs, play, stories, and dance as a way for children to learn self-regulation and social skills.
Jayme is a US Air Force Veteran who has lived in Pennsylvania, New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas. She moved to Virginia 6 years ago and absolutely loves it. When she isn’t turning kids into superhero communicators she enjoys spending time with her daughter Mayzie (9), son Emery (6), 2 dogs- Sydney (Doberman Pinscher) and Cooper (Labradoodle), 2 guinea pigs- Penelope & Ginger, and 2 frogs- Jack & Jill. She enjoys being outside, hiking, doing yoga, trying out vegan and vegetarian recipes, and spending time with her family.
Melissa Roberts is a licensed School Counselor and has been practicing in the state of Virginia for the last 15 years, 10 of those years in Loudoun County Public Schools. She has a degree in Psychology from the University of Delaware and a Masters degree in Counseling and Personnel Services from Fordham University. Melissa has spent a great deal of time working with students of all ages who struggle with anxieties, anger and mood regulation, and has seen the intense need for mindfulness and calming techniques in the schools and for children at home. Melissa decided last year to leave the schools full time in search of something that she could feel passionate about and work into her own schedule…enter Kidding Around Yoga! KAY appears to be the answer to her dreams. It combines working with children, yoga, and a flexible schedule (pun intended!). She is excited to work with children in the community to teach them the science of yoga and mindfulness.
Melissa is originally from the state of NY and moved to Northern Virginia almost 14 years ago. She resides in Leesburg with her daughter, Kaia (10), son, Quentin (7), and cat, Duncan. She enjoys being outside, practicing yoga and spending time with her friends and family.
