I have been working for ESU 5 since September 2015.  I have worked as an occupational therapist in a variety of settings but my focus on pediatrics started 7 years ago while researching sensory processing disorder to help my own son with his sensory issues. I have attended several conferences on pediatric therapy with a sensory integration approach and participated in a clinical mentorship at the STAR (Sensory Therapies & Research) Center in Denver, Colorado. I gained the knowledge to provide occupational therapy to children with a sensory integration approach. Sensory integration addresses the ability to accurately receive sensory input to form appropriate responses for attention, emotion regulation, fine motor coordination, strength, vision, balance, self cares, cognition and social skills. As an occupational therapist for ESU 5, I address how these deficits affect a students ability to participate in their education. I work with individuals ranging from birth to 21 years to help the student learn skills or adapt the activities so they can successfully participate and complete school activities. I believe that it takes a village to raise a child so as an OT, I work with the school team and family to promote a successful education experience for the students.  I graduated from Creighton University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Therapy. I attended Southeast Community College-Beatrice before transferring to Creighton to attend OT school.  

I am originally from Beatrice and have lived in Gage County most of my life. My husband Craig and I have three sons and one daughter who attend school in Beatrice. We live on a farm outside of Beatrice and enjoy spending time working outside, playing ball (any kind-baseball, softball, basketball, and football) and fishing.  When I am not working or attending my children's activities, I enjoy running, gardening, spending time with family and friends, Bible studies and reading.
