As an occupational therapy educator and a pediatric occupational therapist, I am passionate about knowledge generation and translation.  I enjoy supporting students as they discover the profession of occupational therapy.

I have practiced as an occupational therapist in a variety of pediatric settings for nearly 20 years. My experiences include leadership, program development, and advocacy. I am a national presenter and enjoy developing programs to increase participation for children and their families in childhood occupations. I have also worked internationally to define evidence-based practice for occupational therapy practitioners. I value health promotion for children and their families through interprofessional collaboration.
