Have a question for Katie?

My Story

During my undergraduate experience, I had the opportunity to work exclusively for a child diagnosed with Autism. This experience allowed me to collaborate alongside skilled occupational therapists to learn strategies and tools to enable this child to grow and function in daily activities. I saw firsthand how therapy could provide a positive impact on an individual’s life. Thus, this solidified my passion for working with children and integrating play to promote function.

My Blue Bird Day

I am new to the Blue Bird Day team and excited to learn and grow. I am eager to work with all the children and families at BBD to implement creativity into practice for fun ways to challenge each child to succeed.

My Advocacy

Autism Speaks

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. I hope to further expand my knowledge and skills by obtaining continuing education certifications, such as the SOS Approach to Feeding and Therapeutic Listening.
