Occupational Therapist

Basic Information: I am originally from Iowa and received my Bachelor of Arts in Health and Human Physiology at the University of Iowa. I moved to Arizona four years ago for graduate school and have loved living here. I obtained my Masters degree in Occupational Therapy at Midwestern University in Glendale, AZ. I grew up volunteering on mission trips which really ignited my passion for helping my community and working with children.

Interests and Hobbies: I love the outdoors! When the weather is nice, I enjoy hiking, paddle boarding, camping, and playing sand volleyball. I also love to cook and spend time with my family and friends.

Favorite Place to Travel: My favorite place to visit is Hawaii!

Favorite Quote: “Be there for others, but never leave yourself behind.” -Dodinsky

What I Love Most About Working with Children: I love working with children because of their creativity and imagination! Children remind me to enjoy the small moments and be curious. My favorite part of being a pediatric occupational therapist is building connections with the children and their families and watching them reach their full potential one step at a time.
