What do you love about being an OT?

“I believe in the power of early intervention, and starting important work when kids are young and at play. I also love engaging our kids in work that is fun, that is engaging, and that is crucial to their development. I am passionate about success in the gym translating to school and home so that progress is meaningful for our children and families.”
