My Story

I discovered my career path of social work during my undergraduate program while working at a summer camp for children with disabilities. After graduating, I continued my education and obtained my Masters of Social Work degree which led to becoming a Licensed Social Worker. I started my career with ABA Therapy and then worked as an Adult Protective Service Case Worker. I missed working with children, so I made a career switch as a social worker in a therapeutic day school. With that being said, I am passionate about working with children to support their social and emotional growth.

My Education

Masters of Social Worker,
Aurora University

Bachelors of Science in Social Work,
University of Wisconsin-Whitewater

My Blue Bird Day

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.
