I have been an Occupational Therapist for 6 years and my passion is supporting kids in their development to independence! I have worked all around the country in hospitals, home health, early intervention and outpatient clinics. I serve children at Swanson, Weber, Thomson and Lawrence elementary schools. When I am not at schools, I spend as much time as possible outside camping, running, climbing, biking and snowboarding. I can't wait to get to know your little ones!
