I am so excited to be back working full time as an occupational therapist. After serving the last several years as the preschool coordinator for Aberdeen, I have decided to go back to my roots where I can once again work directly with kids and their families. I serve students at Hopkins, Stevens, and Central Park. This is my 28th year working for the Aberdeen School District and I have been an occupational therapist for almost 30 years. I graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor's of Science in Occupational Therapy and then earned my Graduate Degree in Education through Gonzaga University. I have 2 grown children of my own. Drake graduated from the University of Washington and lives in Shoreline, WA. Teal recently graduated from Washington State University and is living in Hawaii. I live at home with my husband, Andy, and our house is full of pets. In my spare time I enjoy reading, doing puzzles, running, going for walks on the beach, traveling, and spending time with my family. I also continue to work as an occupational therapist providing early intervention services through South Sound Parent 2 Parent.
