Areas of expertise: I have worked with babies and children who have motor and sensorimotor deficits. I focus on helping them improve their shoulder and trunk stability, head righting, posture, midline orientation, eye movements and focus. My upper trunk work helps support work with oral motor function and feeding.

I have worked at a cerebral palsy center in New York, in a school with high-risk children, in another school with children with varying needs and here at MPTC for the last 7 years.

Education/Certification: I have an undergraduate degree in sociology and math and a masters in occupational therapy from NYU. I am board certified with NBCOT and the state of Minnesota. I am NDT certified in basic and baby courses.

Specialized training: I have taken the four-day basic brain gym course; I also have taken the Ayres sensorimotor course but did not finish all the paper work. I also took varied handwriting courses. I have worked directly with an optometrist evaluating eye function of CP children. Finally, I have taken many courses over the years in various areas to help me treat children more successfully.
