About Me

 

I graduated from the University of Illinois in 2014 (Go Illini!) and then received my degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee in 2016. Since graduation I have been working as a school based OT, with an interest in trauma informed care. By being a school based OT, there are countless ways for me to work with students and endless opportunities to be creative in how we learn! When I am not at school, I love to travel. I also greatly enjoy cooking, especially trying out new recipes!
