Occupational Therapist, OTR/L
I’m a born in Canada, but raised in California girl, living and practicing in the peninsula area from Belmont to Salinas, providing therapy services to children and families. I have always loved Pediatric and have spent 100% of my career working with young children, birth to 10 years of age. While I have spent much of this time working primarily with children birth to three years of age, in early intervention settings, three years ago I was also able to branch out and establish a private practice in order to expand my services and sensory expertise to a wider age group. This change allowed me the luxury of practicing my two greatest loves: feeding and Sensory Integration work.
Personally I have lived most of my adult life in the Los Gatos area, raising two children, Nicholas and Kimberlyn. During their younger years I worked within the Los Gatos School District while my children were enrolled there. I also established a children’s choir and theater program where I enjoyed introducing young children to another of my loves, music and theater.
My professional interests and ongoing training have always been important and varied, while still focused on early experience and Pediatric therapy. I am a San Jose State University graduate with continuing education courses which include:
- Sensory Integration certification
- Handwriting Without Tears
- Feeding skills for Special Needs Children
- Neurodevelopmental Therapy (NDT)
- Touch points program
- Stanford university Pivotal Response Training (PRT)
It is most important to me to establish trust and respect with my young clients and their parents. I am extremely grateful and excited to be collaborating here at ConnectEd with an amazing and proficient team of professionals.
