Occupational Therapist

imgblk-blankAs an occupational therapist, I am passionate about making a difference. I want to be able to positively impact the lives of others through the work that I do. I continue to pursue new opportunities, education, professional development and professional relationships to support my mission and goals. I am driven by curiosity, grounded in education and evidence based research and a believe in the impossible.

​Over the years, I have and the opportunity to work in a variety of settings, including:

  • Pediatric Acute Care
  • Sensory Clinics and Outpatient Centers
  • Inpatient Adult Rehabilitation for Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Pediatric Orthopedic Hospital
  • NICU
  • In-Home with Medically Fragile Children
  • Early Intervention
  • Children’s Hospital Rehabilitation Units
  • Hippotherapy

I have had experience treating a variety of diagnoses including: Autism, Amputation, Cerebral Palsy, Downs Sydrome, Developemental Delay, Sensory Processing Disorder, Feeding Difficulties, Dysphagia, G-tube transition, DiGeorge Syndrome, Rhett’s Syndrome, Pre-term Infants, Spinal Cord Injury, Traumatic Brain Injury, Seizure Disorder, ADHD, Anxiety and ODD.

As I continue work with these children and families, I am always in search of new research, interventions and strategies to best treat the whole body. In my time as a therapist, I have been driven to dive deeper than just treating the symptoms at first glance. I look at the child’s history from conception until now, becoming aware of who they are as a holistic being and developing an approach that individually addresses their needs, meeting them where they are to help their body integrate from the inside out.

I am looking forward to the opportunity to meet with you and your child and develop a fully integrated plan to help them become their very best!
