My Story

I was first introduced to occupational therapy in high school, when my older sister was considering a career in the field, and it immediately piqued my interest. After having the opportunity to shadow various OT’s and research the career further, I knew that this career matched exactly what I was looking for! I love the holistic nature and creativity that is involved with the profession. Most of all, I love having the ability to help others lead meaningful lives.

My Education

Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy,
University of Wisconsin- Madison

Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitation Psychology,

My Blue Bird Day

As a member of Blue Bird Day, I am grateful and eager to work with the children and families that attend this facility. I am excited to get to know the unique characteristics of each child and tailor individualized (and fun!) strategies to positively impact my client’s lives.

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.
