My Story

I have been in the Western Suburbs working with youth and families in a variety roles since my professional career began. I have worked with the YMCA overseeing the preschool, summer camp, and before and after school program administration. I have been with various soccer clubs as a coach and administrator as well as a program manager at Player Indoor Sports Center. The creation and implementation of organizational systems has always been a passion for me and I have enjoyed watching the growth and development of the programs lead to the enhanced experience of the youth and parents.

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.
