B.S. Psych, Shenandoah University; M.S. OT, Shenandoah University
Fields of Expertise:
Since graduating from Shenandoah with my Masters in Occupational Therapy, my clinical experience has ranged from outpatient pediatrics to physical rehabilitation. The majority of my clinical experience is in acute care, subacute rehab, and outpatient. I have enjoyed expanding my clinical and professional skills by establishing pediatric care in the Rehab Clinical Support Department, serving on the Professional Practice Ladder Committee, and serving as a mentor to new and practicing occupational therapists at Valley Health.
Graduate (Masters) Research: “Effects of Pairing Hippotherapy and Social Skills Training on Social Participation and Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder”

I stay busy outside of work too! I enjoy mountain biking and spending time outdoors with my husband, our son, and our dog, Potato. I’ve moved quite a lot of places since joining Shenandoah University in 2013 but I always seem to end up back here in Winchester – it’s my favorite place.
