Occupational therapy is such a dynamic field where I get to combine creativity and practicality while helping others understand their bodies for functional use. Every body and everybody is different, creating opportunities to try new things with each patient and out-of-the box treatment approaches to personalize how their therapy goals are met. As a certified lymphedema therapist I am learning this more and more, gaining perspective on how to take advantage of life's adventures and exposing myself to new experiences in hope to make myself a more dynamic therapist. I have an innate love for sunshine, sunsets, and beaches being a Cali girl, and am always looking for excuses to travel to new places and eat new foods.
I have worked for 11 years as an Occupational Therapy Assistant in wide variety of settings including out-patient clinics, home health, in-patient rehabilitation, and aquatics, working with patients from all ages.
I became intrigued with the profession of Occupational therapy while working as a clinical assistant at Children’s Hospital of Austin. Working alongside a variety of therapists, I saw first-hand how therapy helps people. I truly thought that would be the perfect career for me because of my love of educating, helping people, and seeing them overcome the various challenges in their lives. I enjoy treating patients of all ages with a variety of diagnosis.
I was born in Longview Texas but grew up in Waco. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, doing activities that are outdoors when the weather permits, and doing creative activities.
