My Story

Growing up I had a lot of opportunities working with children and young adults through community events/outreach and realized I had a passion for helping others. In undergrad, I enrolled in a health professions seminar where I got the opportunity to learn about various health professions and observe them in action. I immediately fell in love with the occupational therapy profession and how holistic of a field it is. I knew that this is what I was meant to do. I love being able to use evidence-based research and find creative ways to help my clients reach their full potential and improve their overall quality of life. I am excited to be a part of the Eyas Landing team and help my clients meet their goals!

My Professional Goals

  1. To further my education through advanced certifications (Sensory Integration, etc.) to assist my clients and their families in reaching their goals.
  2. To assist other individuals pursuing a degree in occupational therapy through observation, mentorship, and Fieldwork supervision.
