I enjoy working with kids and I have a passion for Early Intervention and School-based occupational therapy. I love being able to provide treatment in a child’s natural environment including home, school, and daycare and believe they are able to make tremendous growth when they are in a familiar environment and can easily see the importance of the activities and work they complete during OT. The interdisciplinary approach in schools allows the team to come together with differing points of view to create the best plan for each individual student that can grow and change just as the student does. It brings me so much joy to share with a student, their parents, and their teachers about the progress they make and what they are able to accomplish.

Since graduating with my OTD in 2018 I have worked with children in school, daycare, and clinic settings. I worked for Waynesville R-VI School District and The Speech House, LLC in Missouri before moving to southern Illinois in March of 2020. I am excited about this opportunity to work with children in Illinois and beyond through in-person and teletherapy sessions!
