I am an occupational therapy graduate from Carroll University which was a great experience. While in graduate school, I was able to gain experience with outpatient pediatrics, skilled nursing home and in a rehabilitation hospital for adults and children. As an OT, I have gained experience working within a therapeutic day school for children with medically complex special needs such as autism, rare genetic disorders, cerebral palsy, tramautic brain injuries, physical impairments and other sensory processing, communication and cognitive disorders. I also have experience working for a home health agency, but for the elderly population. I have grown to really love the home health industry and my passion is to work with children. I know that when one person is affected within a family, it affects the entire family as a unit especially within their home environments. As an OT, my priority is to help my clients achieve their family-centered goals and improve their overall quality of life within their homes and throughout their communities.
