About Me 

I graduated in 2006 with my Master’s degree from the University of Southern Indiana. I began my OT career in Owensboro, KY in acute inpatient rehabilitation where I still currently practice. I also have worked in acute care, outpatient settings, and school-based practice. I have OT experience across the life span, including the pediatric and geriatric population. I enjoy getting to know my clients and fostering the therapist-client relationship, which is a crucial element of the therapy process. As an educator, I enjoy sharing my knowledge and passion for OT with my students. I learn as much from my students as they learn from me. I am preparing to begin my OTD studies at EKU to further develop my knowledge of OT. I am married to my high school sweetheart and have 3 children.
