A Little About Me. . .
My name is Dr. Lisa Marnell. 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.
I am on the faculty at BU where I teach some amazing doctoral students! Also, I serve on the Board of Directors at the STAR Institute in Denver. I am diagnosed on the spectrum myself.
My goal is to incorporate meaning, joy, and agency into the lives of neurodivergent and autistic children. I am Canadian, though I live in California. When I am not teaching, creating courses, or working with kids, you will likely find me hiking with my precious husky rescue dog, Luna.
