Biographical Sketch

I grew up in a rural town north of Monroe and have lived in this area my entire life.  My husband and I have two beautiful children. We enjoy spending time together as a family and participating in any and all outdoor activities.

After graduating from ULM with my Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy in 2006, I practiced in an outpatient orthopedics and neuro clinic.  During that time, I started a pelvic floor program and attained my certification in biofeedback for pelvic floor disorders. After having my first child I decided to make a career change, to something more family friendly, and I moved into pediatrics in a school system setting.  Being immersed in the education world ignited a desire to further my education, so I returned to school for my clinical doctorate in occupational therapy.

In the Master of Occupational Therapy Program I am not only able to teach but also practice in our onsite pediatric and adult clinics, as well as serve the community through our psychosocial fieldwork sites.  I also serve in the Autism Center at ULM as an evaluator and clinician.  In my "free" time, I continue to practice in early intervention and supervise some amazing occupational therapy assistants.
