I am a pediatric occupational therapist who feels so privileged to be able to work in a field that is such a good fit for me. I have always loved working with children and from an early age I volunteered at my church in the nursery school program and later taught in Sunday school classes. At times there were children in these programs that needed special care and attention and I was drawn to these children and soon discovered that there was a very strong connection that formed. When I learned about the field of occupational therapy I knew this is what I wanted to do. I have been in the field almost 35 years and still love the opportunity to work with “my kids” and hope to continue to be of help to these beautiful children and their families for a long time. I am certified in many areas, have taken many, many courses so it would not be possible to list all of them here but some of the more relevant ones are: SCSIT, and SIPT certification, IM provider, Therapeutic listening provider, TAMO certified (based on the physics of movement) extensive training in sensory processing . I have worked in the school system and in private practice my whole career.
