Occupational Therapist – Therapy Coordinator

I graduated from UCA in 2015 with my master’s degree in Occupational Therapy. I am an “Air Force Brat” that was born in California, spent a few years in Louisiana, and eventually landed in Waco, Texas, where I spent most of my childhood and graduated high school. Harding University brought me to Arkansas. During my time as an undergrad at Harding, I met Jake and was able to study abroad in Greece which was the experience of a lifetime. It created a spark for travel and I have been able to see 16 different countries thus far…I hope to add many more to that in the future. I decided to make Arkansas my home, officially, after graduating from UCA. In addition to being an OT, I am the therapy coordinator at Hippos and Fish and serve as co-director for the ACTS (Acting Creates Therapeutic Success) program in Conway. I live in Conway, Arkansas, with my husband, Jake, joy-filled daughter, Sage, and our two fur children, Florence and Obi. We really enjoy traveling, spending time with family, being outdoors (hiking, camping, floating), and listening to live music. My desire to become an occupational therapist began in eighth grade and I truly believe I am getting to live out my dream career.
