I am a 46-year-old who graduated from the U. of Puget Sound with a degree in Occupational Therapy, practicing 15 years with the geriatric population which is my passion. I'm experienced in in skilled nursing facilities, home health care, outpatient clinics and memory care; working with a variety of diagnosis including Strokes, Dementia/Alzheimers, total hip and knee replacements, back surgeries, Parkinsons, cardiac conditions and more.
I am highly skilled in teaching ADLs: dressing, toileting, bathing, meal prep, medication management and community reentry. I also specialize in therapeutic exercise, transfer/mobility training, balance and coordination, and family training, home modifications to increase safety and accessibility.
I took a break from practicing OT a have spent the last three years caring for loved ones with dementia and found that my passion is caring for people 1:1. I'm looking forward to sharing an experience caring for your loved one and your family.
