I am a registered occupational therapist and I'm excited to start another wonderful year in the Cave Creek Unified School District. My passion for helping children began after college when I was selected as a volunteer for a government-funded program called AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC). During my time in AmeriCorps I built homes and playgrounds, refurbished teen centers, worked as a camp counselor for abused and neglected children, assisted with disaster relief, and taught illiterate children of various ages how to read. My time spent in AmeriCorps was extremely humbling, and drove my career in the direction to help others. After coming home and spending time working for a pharmaceutical company, I realized how much I missed helping children. I went back to school and completed my Master of Elementary Education degree with Teaching Certification and Structured English Immersion (SEI) endorsement at Northern Arizona University (Go Jacks!). I taught for six and a half years in second, third, and fourth grade. During my time as a teacher I became actively involved with our school’s Response to Intervention (RtI) team, assisting to differentiate instruction for our students with learning and behavior needs. Through my years working with my special education students, I discovered the field of occupational therapy and knew in my heart it was what I was meant to do! I completed my Master of Occupational Therapy degree from A.T. Still University Arizona School of Health Sciences, and spent time working at a pediatric clinic that specializes in sensory integration.  I look forward to partnering with you and continue witnessing the progress in each of our amazing students!
