My Story

Growing up with a cousin on the autism spectrum, I was introduced to the world of sensory processing at a young age.  I knew I wanted to pursue a career where I could help make a difference in the lives of people like my cousin.  After observing a pediatric occupational therapist while in high school, I knew I had found my calling.  I have been a licensed and registered occupational therapist (OTR/L) since October 2016 after graduating with my Master’s in Occupational Therapy (MOT) from Saint Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa.  Although I am new to Eyas Landing, I am not new to the Chicago area.  I have professional experience in outpatient pediatrics as well as the school setting, specifically within a cooperative for children enrolled in a Communication Development program in the southwest of the Chicagoland area.  I also value the importance of music and love to incorporate this into my practice in any medium, whether it be singing, playing instruments, or just listening to a child’s favorite song.  Building rapport with my clients through mutual interests as well as song and imaginative play is my favorite part of what I do, and I am thankful that I have the opportunity to do so. 

My Eyas Landing

What I enjoy most is the unparalleled sense of community, understanding, collaboration, and belonging within a multi-disciplinary team and I am so excited to be a part of it! 

My Professional Goals

  1. My professional goal is to become certified in the Sensory Integration and Praxis Test (SIPT) and Ayers Sensory Integration (ASI) to hone in on my ability to better assist those with sensory processing difficulties. 

Eyas Landing is a therapy clinic with a mission to provide evidence-based and family-centered therapy services for children, adolescents, and their families. The primary goal is to deliver relationship-based interventions within the most natural environments and to empower families to reach their full potential.

The strength, determination, and perseverance of our clients are evident as they succeed in therapy, and ultimately in their daily lives.
