A Little About Me. . .
Hello! I am an occupational therapist with 20 years of experience. I completed my doctorate at Boston University (BU) where I studied executive function in autism.
Now, I am on the faculty at BU and serve on the Board of Directors at the STAR Institute in Denver. I am diagnosed on autistic myself.
My goal is to incorporate meaning, joy, and agency into the lives of autistic children and their families. I believe that autism is not a disorder, but rather that it represents a different neurology, with its own strengths and challenges. This is also called strengths-based or neurodiversity-affirming practice.
When I am not teaching, creating courses, or working with kids, you will likely find me hiking with Luna, my precious husky rescue dog. I look forward to meeting you!
