Professional Goals

  1. I look forward to working as a therapeutic assistant and hope to earn a Master’s degree in the near future in this related field.

My Story

I was originally born in Lithuania and have now lived in Chicago for the past 16 years. I am very passionate about working with children and have been an early childhood teacher for 5 years. I am also fascinated by psychology and how the mind works, as well as how its function varies depending on the individual. I completed my Bachelors in psychology and sociology and love to study different methods of therapy. I am very excited to have a chance to play a positive role in the lives of the children at Blue Bird Day and to learn more about each one of them.

My Advocacy

I am a strong advocate for mental health care, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and support organizations such as Best Buddies.

My Education

Bachelor’s in Sociology and Psychology

My Blue Bird Day

I really enjoy supporting the company’s mission of helping children reach their full potential through individualized therapeutic care.

Blue Bird Day

Blue Bird Day fosters socialization, sensory regulation, and pre-academic learning in children ages 2–7 years in therapeutic rotations that simulate  preschool and kindergarten settings. Our compassionate therapists practice a relationship-based and family-centered approach, provide parent training, and collaborate on goals and individualized intensive treatment plans for your child.

We believe in a collaborative and multi-disciplinary team approach to therapy.  A team of occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, dietitians, developmental therapists, behavioral therapists, physical therapists, and therapeutic assistants are created for each child to ensure child and family are fully supported and the best possible results are achieved.  

Options for individualized, group and virtual therapy sessions are available as well.
