Get to know me

I graduated from Georgia Regents University with a Master of Health Science in Occupational Therapy. My journey into the field of OT began in high school when I provided care for a child with special needs and attended his therapy sessions. Over the past 8 years, I have worked as a pediatric OT, dedicated to making a difference.

I hold certifications in both The Astronaut Training Program, which is designed to integrate the senses of vision, hearing, and movement, and The Therapeutic Listening Program, which addresses sensory modulation, auditory sensitivity, auditory processing, vestibular dysfunction, and coordination. I have pursued advanced training in reflex integration and have extensive experience in addressing challenges related to tactile sensitivity, auditory defensiveness, and emotional regulation.

My approach to my work is marked by creativity and adaptability, as I enjoy thinking on my feet and finding innovative solutions to meet the unique needs of the children I work with.

Other Interests

During my leisure hours, I relish spending quality time with my daughter, husband, and beloved dog. Traveling and immersing myself in diverse cultures and new destinations is a particular passion of mine. The mountains hold a special place in my heart and are my preferred destination. Additionally, I take pleasure in outdoor activities such as hiking and kayaking.
