I’m committed to empowering and educating families on the different ways to support their child’s development. I’ve committed my career to work with families who have children with developmental delays, but I truly feel that these children should not be treated any differently than any other children. I’m passionate about collaborating with parents to create opportunities for every child to be the best they can be!  During my down time, I love to hike, run, read, exercise, and spend time with my family!

I love working closely with parents to learn about the child’s interests and to concurrently address parents’ concerns.  I use a holistic approach that combines a variety of therapeutic techniques, yoga, and exercise, to make PT fun and effective.  The most rewarding part of being a PT is working with families to help each child reach their full potential in all settings, home, school, and their community.  When I have free time, I enjoy being outside, in my garden, on my bike, or in my kayak.

As a pediatric occupational therapist, I have the privilege to become a part of a child’s unique journey. I love helping teach families ways to acquire new skills and grow in a way that is functional and meaningful to each individual child. I'm lucky to help empower families to feel confident in assisting their child reach their fullest potential.

When I’m not at work I really enjoy yoga, running, hiking, and kayaking with my husband and puppy.

I love to work with children to enable them to reach their fullest potential through play and participation in daily routines.  I enjoy discovering and incorporating each individual child's strengths and interests in order to support their progress in reaching their goals.  It is so rewarding to support families as they facilitate their child's growth and development.  During my free time, I enjoy going on adventures with my black Lab, Whim, and doing challenging jigsaw puzzles.

I love to work with families to advance their child's speech, and language, and communication. I enjoy teaming up with parents to identify and create opportunities throughout their day and during play where their child can effectively communicate ideas, thoughts, and desires. It's so rewarding to see children become effective, enthusiastic, and successful communicators! When I'm not at work, I like to cook, read, hike, play with my dog, and spend time with my family.

I find it especially rewarding to help kiddos be able to express themselves and participate in their environments (whether it be home, school, or socially). I also love being silly and being creative so working with little ones gives me the opportunity to think of fun activities, to try new ways to teach language, and to learn from them and their families. 

When I’m not at work I really enjoy being outside. I love running, hiking, and swimming! I also have always loved music and I will sing everywhere (in sessions and out!).
