FB_IMG_1512443950172-4 (1)I am very excited to be part of the Pediatric Therapeutics family once again! I began here in 2008 working mostly Saturdays and Monday afternoons for almost seven years. I have been working in pediatrics for 14 years in various settings, such as, early intervention, social skills groups, private and public school settings and private practice here at Pediatric Therapeutics. I currently work full-time at Trinitas Children’s Therapy Services, in both a public elementary school, pre-school to second grade, and a private special education school, ages 5-21. I have been working at Trinitas for the last 12 years. I graduated from American International College in Springfield, Massachusetts, where I received a bachelor’s degree in Occupational Therapy in 2001. I am SIPT certified, as well as, certified in the Handwriting Without Tears program. I grew up in Cape Cod, Massachusetts and relocated to New Jersey, where my husband grew up. We have been married for 14 years, residing in Chatham, NJ. We have two amazing children, Abby, age 10, and Tyler, age 8. I love being a mom, my career, going to the beach and being with family and friends! I will be at Pediatric Therapeutics on Monday afternoons and Saturday mornings.
