I was a stay at home mom from the time I graduated in May of 1999 with my M.S. in OT until I started my own private pediatric occupational therapy practice in February 2013. From 1998 to 2002, my husband and I had 4 children. While I was a stay at home mom, I utilized the knowledge that I learned in OT school to monitor the development of my children. Staying at home with my kids has made me a better therapist. I am more empathetic to the families I work with and what they go through at home on a daily basis. This has helped me to create more realistic treatment plans by taking into account the increased daily demands that each family is going through with a child with special needs.
Worked 20 hours/week for the Occupational Therapy Department at KUMC as part of a scholarship received to obtain my M.S. in OT. Taught undergraduate Occupational Therapy classes, presented case studies at KUMC's grand rounds, member of the Autism Diagnostic Multi-Disciplinary Team at KUMC. Research assistant to Dr. Winnie Dunn, Occupational Therapist and Head of the Occupational Therapy Department at the University of Kansas Medical Center, on her early research on the Sensory Profile. The Sensory Profile is currently the leading assessment used by OT's to evaluate children and adults for sensory processing disorders.
Provided occupational therapy services to children with autism in their homes. Educated and supported the family on treatment techniques. Evaluated the child and created a treatment plan and therapy goals. Provided support and advocacy services for the child and their family through collaboration with individuals involved with the child in school, therapy and caregivers in the home.
Evaluated the needs of the client and then created a treatment plan and therapy goals. Documented the client's progress, and if needed, adjusted the treatment plan to reflect the client's progress or decline.

Taught diabetes education and how to prevent further complications. Taught clients how to check their blood sugar and take their insulin with adaptive equipment.
