It is my privilege to take part in children's therapy journey. I like to make physical therapy fun with singing and incorporate it into function. Amidst strength and limitations, I look for possibilities of each child to move forward. It is fascinating to identify the missing puzzle at different levels and to facilitate internal control of the optimal function. My reward is to watch every "got it" moment: The grin on the little face is priceless.

As a speech language pathologist, I have worked with pediatric patients and their families since 1976. I love my work for several reasons. It is a privilege to intersect with families regarding the concerns they have about their child and the child’s future functioning. Also, I love the challenge of problem-solving to determine the root issues that are causing the presenting problem(s). Finally, the variety of interventions that can be used to help a child progress continues to improve giving me the opportunities to constantly expand my skills.
Today I took a boat ride down a river full of alligators, rode with Luke Skywalker into battle and built a castle for a princess; just another day at the office for me. You see being a pediatric occupational therapist allows me to travel with children and their imaginations on many adventures. On these adventures it is my job to help each child reach certain milestones that will help them become more independent in their daily life. We improve fine-motor skills, balance, coordination, sensory processing issues and activities of daily living while "playing". Some of our adventures can be challenging but seeing a child's smile or hearing them say "I did it" means we have accomplished one more milestone on their journey through life.
