My Story

I knew that I wanted to work in this field when my younger brother was diagnosed with autism. From a young age, I was happy to support my family in all the ways I could. That included being a part of all the therapies, IEP meetings, evaluations, medical appointments, etc. This experience led me to discover my passion for helping neurodivergent individuals reach their full potential.

My Education

Bachelors of Science in Sociology and Criminology,
Dominican University

My Professional Goals

  1. My professional goal is to earn my Master’s degree in Applied Behavior Analysis to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.

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.
