My Story

My first part-time job was working at a daycare. Instantly, I knew that working with children and their families was my passion. I took various roles working as a daycare provider, substitute teacher, respite care, and vocational care worker. As I decided on a college, I researched different career paths that allowed me to be creative and still work with children. When I shadowed an occupational therapist at a therapeutic preschool, I instantly fell in love and haven’t turned back since. 

My Eyas Landing

What I love most is finding creative ways to engage, support, and encourage growth in each of our children. It goes both ways! Each and every day, I learn something new from them as well. 

My Advocacy

My Professional Goals

  1. My goal is to organize and coordinate a company-wide volunteer group focused on community activism. 

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. To achieve this goal, our highly educated, compassionate staff dedicates time and expertise to create experiences that maximize therapeutic outcomes. The strength, determination, and perseverance of our clients are evident as they succeed in therapy, and ultimately in their daily lives.

Eyas Landing offers a wide range of comprehensive services including Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, ABA Therapy, Social Work, Family Therapy, and Neuropsych testing. Services are provided throughout the Chicagoland area via Telehealth, In-Home, and in our state of the art clinic.
