Nimla Govenor-Physical Therapist

I was born in South Africa and graduated with a degree in Physiotherapy. I worked there for 10 years in a variety of settings before moving to America in 1997. After spending several years in orthopedics, respiratory, medical and neurosurgical in-patients, outpatients and ICU, I decided to venture in Pediatrics.

I organized and co-coordinated several courses including an 8 week NDT course, and attended several other Physical Therapy related courses. I gained experience in clinics for children with Cerebral Palsy who came mainly from rural areas, and also worked in neonatal ICU.  In the school setting I worked with children who had sustained head injuries and those who had other neurological problems.

After arriving in America, I was a full-time mother for 6 years before venturing out to work in Early Intervention. I worked mainly in the home setting as well as in the clinic.

I am now working full-time in the school setting in District 204 and have been working here since 2004. I worked in several schools within our district and I now work in 5 schools (4 Elementary and 1 Middle school). I enjoy keeping up to date by attending continuing education classes and participating in school team discussions. I love what I do, and I use an individualized approach for all my students. I look forward to working with your child to enhance his/her performance within the educational setting.

After that she moved to Hill Middle School where she worked as the Interventionist and Student Services Coordinator. Mrs. Vogel joined Spring Brook in 2012 as the Student Services Coordinator.  Her favorite thing about being a Husky is that she gets to be a member of the collaborative and supportive community that Spring Brook is known for. She lives in Oswego with her husband who is also an educator and their four children.
