I am an occupational therapist with ten years of experience working in skilled nursing facilities as both a staff therapist and Director of Rehabilitation. While I have worked to develop a broad range of clinical skills, including ortho, neuro, and general medical, I am particularly interested in mental health, cognition, and building meaningful and occupation-based programming for long term care residents. I also love teaching. I’ve taught numerous fieldwork students, taught in an adjunct role at a college, and presented at state and national conferences. I am currently working on my OTD and developing the courses I wish I could have taken over the last few years.
