Biographical Sketch

I am an assistant professor in the Master of Occupational Therapy Bridge Program here at ULM. I obtained my bachelor of science in occupational therapy in 2003 from ULM and I recently completed the doctoral program of occupational therapy at Rocky Mountain University in Utah in December of 2015. I am blessed with three beautiful daughters and a loving husband of 18 years.  I am deeply honored to share my love for occupational therapy with the students of the University of Louisiana at Monroe. I also have the privilege of being the clinic coordinator for our on-campus occupational therapy clinic.In addition I currently serve as a liaison with the Northeast Louisiana Children's Coalition to provide educational services through their Family Resource Center for Northeast Louisiana: Life skills training. I am also connecting with a small school province in Nicaragua to provide distance consultative services to underserved students in Nicaragua area. 
I have recently presented at the 2017 Louisiana Special Education Superconference and at the  April 2017 AOTA Centennial Conference.

 I look forward to many years of teaching and expanding my knowledge here at ULM.
