Outside of work, she enjoys reading, volleyball, spending time outside, cooking, yoga and attempting to garden. “I originally decided to go down the path towards Occupational Therapy after meeting a little boy with Down syndrome in high school. After working with him through a soccer program for kids with special needs, I kept in touch with his family and joined him at a summer camp for kids with special needs throughout college. He is the reason that I decided to pursue a degree in occupational therapy.”
