My Passion for Healthcare

I always knew I wanted to work with kids. I grew up in a medical family with a dad who was a general surgeon and a mom who was a RN. I volunteered at a children's hospital after graduating from college in the rehab dept and fell in love with Occupational Therapy.

  2. Outpatient Therapy
  3. Spina Bifida Clinic
  4. Feeding Therapist

My Clinical Focus

I have worked in pediatrics my entire career thus far and have found that I especially love working in inpatient acute care. I love the variety of patients, the team approach, the fast pace and constantly learning about new diagnoses/conditions. I also really enjoy working with feeding patients, especially infants/neonates and working with the family towards safe and successful oral feeds.
