Chloe Ang, President
Yee Kaisin, Immediate Past President
Kaisin continues to support the team at SALTS on a mission to support the growing field of speech and language therapy in Singapore. For the rest of the week, Kaisin works with people with head and neck cancer, and gets too excited about outcome measures. When she is not making grand plans, you can find her running after (or from) wild animals in the wilderness.
Maria Tan, Secretary & Vice President of Operations
How do you solve a problem like Maria? By plying her with free food, cute animals and bad jokes, of course! Maria enjoys working with children and their parents in the private setting. She hopes to extend this through SALTS by facilitating connections between therapists and the wider community.
Elizabeth Teo, Vice President of Strategy
Elizabeth graduated from California State University East Bay with Master in Science in Speech-Language Pathology. She joined the SALTS committee to share experiences gained abroad and to contribute to the local Speech Therapy community. In the day, Elizabeth works with stroke survivors at a community-based setting. Outside of work, Elizabeth enjoys hiking, exploring new places and spending time with family and friends.
Peggy Ching, Treasurer
Peggy joined SALTS committee enthusiastically to be a part of a group that fosters relationships within the Speech Therapy community in Singapore.

As a General Committee Member, she is excited to be a part of SALTS’ journey in sharing, learning, and networking amongst professionals in Singapore.

Dharshini is looking forward to being part of SALTs and finding opportunities to give back to the professional community.
