Hello! I graduated from Michigan State University in 2013 with my Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology and Psychology.  Thus, I am a huge Michigan State football and basketball fan--Go Green! I received by Master of Science degree in Occupational Therapy from Western Michigan University in 2015. Throughout my academic career, I was fortunate enough to work within a variety of populations and settings, including pediatrics, geriatrics, mental health, and brain injuries. I was also given the opportunity to obtain experience at Origami through my final internship of occupational therapy fieldwork before being hired on as a full time occupational therapist! The value of education is very important to me. I am driven to continually acquire increased knowledge, apply it within my occupational therapy profession, and become the greatest clinician I can be for all the clients I have the pleasure of treating. My motivation to learn translates directly to my passion for occupational therapy; a profession which thrives on its ability to adapt and re-educate itself in order to enable individuals to live with dignity and independence.
