What I Do

I am passionate when it comes to a client-centered, holistic approach to health and wellness. I assist others in reaching goals and achieving their highest level of independence, despite any limitations and/or obstacles they face, while preventing or minimizing disability. 


I Educate.

I teach others how to modify tasks depending on their abilities in order to live safer, more independent lives

I Advocate.

I strive to promote occupational justice by empowering patients to seek and acquire resources that allow them to fully participate in daily life occupations. It is important I justify the medical necessity of services so my patients obtain the level of care they deserve.


I Motivate.

I set goals that are easily attainable and meaningful in order to increase my patients level of confidence and engagement in activities. 

My Story

I am a Knoxville, Tennessee native with a passion for family, friends, animals, the outdoors, music, and helping those in need. I have been married for almost two years, have two beautiful stepchildren, and two adorable fur babies. Prior to completing my masters, I graduated from Brenau University in Gainesville, GA with a BS and a pre-OT concentration. 

I was first introduced to occupational therapy my Freshman year of high school; my best friend suffered an arteriovenous malformation (AVM), which occurs when blood vessels in the brain connecting arteries and veins becomes tangled, limiting normal blood flow and oxygen circulation. She was in a coma for several months, and upon waking had to re-learn methods of communication, ambulation, and all daily occupations (i.e. eating, dressing, bathing). I was able to observe firsthand the integral role occupational therapy had in my friend’s recovery. That initially sparked my interest in the field; however, it wasn’t until years later that I would be re-introduced to the profession, and after several hours of observing therapist’s in various settings, I was reminded why I fell in love with the field. Witnessing patients’ progression in their treatment, whether via strengthening activities after an injury, learning compensatory techniques post-stroke, or discovering ways in which to modify tasks to promote independence inspired me, and along with my love of working with and helping others, I started my occupational therapy journey.
