Daniella Johnson, Consultant, Muslim Women’s Institute for Research and Development
Daniella Johnson has been a Speech-Language Pathologist for over 20 years serving both the pediatric and geriatric populations in various early intervention programs, schools, day programs, skilled nursing, assisted and independent living facilities throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and parts of New York. Ms. Johnson holds both a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts degrees in Speech-Pathology and Audiology from South Carolina State University in 2003 and 2008 respectively. Born on the twin island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Ms. Johnson grew up with an almost innate sense of responsibility to do what you can, when you can, to help those in need and that ideal did not change when, at the age of 9, her family relocated to the Bronx, New York. What started out as a faith calling by her mother to assist low-income, immigrants who were mostly from West African countries and Muslim with transitional needs, evolved into the Muslim Women’s Institute for Research and Development, a faith-based, community based, non-profit organization with a focus that has grown to include assistance for anyone in need and a murid of services offered to enhance the quality of life of those served. In 2018, Ms. Johnson joined the MWIRD team as they continue their legacy work of providing services and resources to members of the Highbridge and greater Bronx community, as they have done for the past 25 years.
