My Story

In 2006, I dislocated my right shoulder and had to have surgery to repair my labrum. I was then required to attend physical therapy twice a week after school (clearly, every high schooler’s dream after-school activity). It was a world I was totally unfamiliar with at the time, but I became fascinated by it. During my senior year in high school, I was fortunate enough to take Anatomy & Physiology and it deepened my curiosity and passion to understand how the human body functions. The rest is history 🙂

My Blue Bird Day

I enjoy working at Blue Bird Day because I’m able to learn so much on a daily basis due to the multi-disciplinary approach that is at its foundation. Also, being able to have such direct interaction with every child’s parent(s), family, caregiver, etc. truly sets up him or her for the ultimate success.  

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.
