My Story

In high school, I was a student Athletic Trainer and became fascinated with physical rehabilitation of the human body. I took my interest and dove into physical therapy at the very start of my undergrad at NIU. In grad school, I was fortunate enough to have multiple clinical setting experiences from pediatrics to geriatrics and hospitals to outpatient settings. By the end of my clinical rotations, I knew I had a passion for work with children and being surrounded by their high energies and smiling faces. 

My Blue Bird Day

While at Blue Bird Day I have enjoyed working with such a multidisciplinary team. Receiving input on a child’s communication, behavior, and sensory system from my colleagues has made me a well-rounded therapist. I feel my treatment sessions are more productive when I know how to specifically structure my sessions in order to not over stimulate, help regulate, and properly communicate with each child. 

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. Help mentor new clinicians and students to achieve their full potential. 
  2. Continue to learn new intervention strategies.
