Why did you become an OT? Or What do like most about being an OT?

I learned to be a caregiver at a young age, after watching my mother overcome a debilitating condition. I love that OT allows me to be a coach for some of the most inspiring people out there.

What settings have you practiced as a therapist?

  • Skilled nursing facilities
  • Outpatient adult and pediatric settings
  • Inpatient acute hospital settings
  • Intensive rehabilitation hospital settings
  • Sub acute long term care facilities

What inspires you about Neofect users/your clients? OR Why are you passionate about Neofect products?

As a therapist I know how hard it is to do the same exercises over and over again. I love Neofect products because they help keep people engaged in and enthusiastic about the type of repetitive exercise needed to make real change in your brain/body.

What are you passionate about outside of work?

I studied art for many years and I love to work with my hands. I always have a list of creative projects waiting for me at home.
