I graduated from University of Indianapolis with my master’s in occupational therapy. I have a strong passion for working with kids ages 0-3 as they grow and learn new things every day. I love play based therapy because it allows kids to have fun and stay engaged while working on the skills they need for daily life. I strongly believe it is my job to listen to parents concerns and work together on making a plan that will assist each individual child/family in progressing towards their goals. I want to bring new and creative ideas into your home in order to make each session fun and exciting. I have a strong pediatric background and have worked with many different diagnosis. I look forward to working with families in overcoming obstacles in order to gain independence.
I am an Indiana native and have worked with children of all abilities and ages for many years. I love working with children because each day brings new wonders and excitements. They are my greatest encouragement to use my imagination, stay positive, and always celebrate the simplest things every single day. Every child is so unique and special in their own way that I believe collaboration with families is the key to achieving each child’s goals. My goal is to not only support every child the best way I can, but their families as well. I received my Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from Ball State University and graduated from the University of Indianapolis with my Doctorate in Occupational Therapy. I have clinic experience working with Development Delays, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADD/ ADHD, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and Sensory Processing Disorders and I have a strong interest in child mental health.
I have always had a passion for working with kids. I graduated with my Master’s in Occupational Therapy from Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis in the Summer of 2017. I have experience working with kids diagnosed with CP, Autism Spectrum Disorder, developmental delays, learning disabilities, ADHD, ODD, Spina Bifida, and other chromosomal or genetic abnormalities. I like to make therapy as fun and rewarding as possible while helping children reach their goals. I look forward to having the opportunity to make a difference in children’s lives and grow as a therapist at PediPlay.
