Educational Background: I graduated from Saint Francis University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Health Sciences and a Minor in Psychology. In 2010, I graduated from Saint Francis with my Master’s in Occupational Therapy.
Years in profession: I have been an Occupational Therapist for 13 years. I started my career at Windber Hospital as a therapy aide until I passed by boards and was then hired as a full-time Occupational therapist working in the Pediatric department. I have always worked in both outpatient pediatric therapy and early intervention. I also spent some time working for Camco as an occupational therapist in the schools.
Family life: When I am not working, you can find me spending time with my husband with whom I have been married since 2010 and our 2 dogs. We enjoy going on walks with our dogs and hanging out on the deck on nice days. I also love spending time with my nieces and nephews. We go on as my fun adventures as we can and enjoy doing arts and crafts and spending time outdoors.
What I enjoy most about what I do: I enjoy working in early intervention to help children in the most critical years of development to make the biggest impact. I love being able to work with families one on one to help provide the tools they need to empower their children.
