About Me

I have worked as an occupational therapist in acute rehab, acute care, skilled nursing and home health over a twenty year period. My practice focus has been with adults with neurological injury. I love to learn and have engaged in extensive personal development activities with a particular interest in the mind-body connection, alternative health, and how to create more complete wellness.


I graduated from UC Davis with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology in 1993 and from University of Puget Sound with a Master of Occupational Therapy in 1996. I am currently enrolled in a Doctor of Education in the Health Professions program at A.T. Still University with an anticipated graduation date in early 2022.

Teaching Interests

Integration of clinical reasoning during clinical experiences, practitioner self-care, health and wellness promotion, and application of occupational therapy interventions with adults.
