OT is a passion of mine where I feel like I am living my life to the fullest by helping my students do the same! I am so excited to work with you & your child this year! It is going to be a year full of fun, learning, and lots of growth! Just a little bit about me: I was born outside of Chicago, grew up in Lancaster County, graduated from Conestoga Valley High School! I now live in Manheim, just outside of Lititz! This is my 4th year working at Warwick School District, and I am thrilled to be working in such an awesome community with incredible students, parents & teachers! I received both my bachelor's and master’s degrees from Misericordia University, and am currently looking into doctoral programs to further my education. I think the best thing about being an OT is the ability to problem-solve with an entire team to find a solution that will make our students as independent as they can be in all areas of life!
Outside of discovering new & creative ways to best serve my students, I love to spend time with family & friends, practice yoga, explore new eateries & coffee shops in Lancaster, shop, and travel! One of my favorite things to do is spend a week with a medical missions team in rural Jamaica each summer where we work with children and adults with disabilities while training staff in therapy techniques. I haven't been able to participate in this trip for the past few years due to the pandemic, but hope to be able to travel again soon!
