My Areas of Practice
I am passionate about providing occupational therapy services and enjoy helping patients regain independence with daily activities. I enjoy working with patients that have a variety of diagnoses and specialize in providing low vision occupational therapy services.
Low vision occupational therapy includes rehabilitation for patients with visual loss that impacts safety and independence with activities of daily living (ADLs) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs). Low vision is commonly caused by glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. A variety of neurological events such as traumatic brain injury, brain tumor or stroke can cause a visual field loss, resulting in low vision impairments.
I also specialize areas cognitive assessment and rehabilitation, neurorehabilitation and pre-driving assessments.

Member of American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) and Minnesota Occupational Therapy Association (MOTA)
I have been an Occupational Therapist at Methodist Hospital since 2007. I have experience in areas of acute care, home care and outpatient occupational therapy services. I love being an Occupational Therapist as it allows me the opportunity to guide and support patients in regaining their independence once again. I enjoy working with all ages of patients and specialize in geriatric care and with focus on safety in aging. I also specialize providing low vision occupational therapy services and am currently enrolled in the University of Alabama, Brimingham Low Vision Graduate Certificate Program. When not working as an Occupational Therapist, I enjoy spending time with my husband and son, family and friends. I also enjoy running including half and full marathons, being outdoors, various craft activities, and watching the Minnesota Twins.
