I am excited to be returning to Lincoln for the 2018-19 school year. I have been a licensed and board certified occupational therapist since 2001. My career focus has been pediatrics. I have enjoyed working with children in early intervention, clinic-based settings and all levels of school-based therapy (early childhood, elementary, middle school and high school). I seek to adapt the therapy context to fit the needs of every student. Some students are seen in the context of individual therapy, others are seen in dyads or groups, some students are seen in their classrooms and others are provided support through consult with parents, teachers and staff. Although the focus of my work at Lincoln is delivery of services to students who have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), I also provide multiple levels of supports to students in the general education population. I am invested in seeing every student at Lincoln succeed and meet his/her potential.
I live in Wheaton with my husband. I enjoy rooting for the Cubbies, learning, reading, trying new restaurants and spending time with family and friends.
