My Story

I originally learned about OT working as a TA in a special education classroom and entered the occupational therapy program at UIC with the intention of going into pediatrics. Well, I fell in love with physical rehabilitation during one of my clinical rotations and decided to pursue that after graduation. I spent 8 years working with geriatric populations in skilled nursing facilities before transitioning to my original passion: pediatrics. I’ve been an OT for 11 years now and I love using my creativity to devise new and fun activities that are client-centered and functional. I believe that everyone, regardless of age or ability level, should be able to participate in activities/occupations that are meaningful to them.

My Eyas Landing

I worked at Blue Bird Day Northcenter for 3 years before taking a break to spend time with family during Covid. I missed Blue Bird/Eyas Landing and decided to return!
