I am a practicing occupational therapist specializing in evaluation and intervention for individuals with complex medical needs and significant cognitive impairments. My clinical experience spans pediatric and physical dysfunction practice areas, including within physical medicine, private special education day school, adult day habilitation, and community based occupational therapy practice. As an occupational therapy supervisor, I have experience in occupational therapy management and interprofessional team management, as well as an interest in staff development and fieldwork education.
