I am an Associate Professor and the Academic Fieldwork Coordinator for the Occupational Therapy program in the Department of OTRT, since 2008. I graduated with my OTD in 2015, and also earned a Higer Education Teaching Specialist certification the same year. My Master's dregree in Occupational Therapy came from the University of Indianapolis in 1998, which I earned after completing a BS at the University of Utah in 1996.  As a practicing clinician, I worked with adults in neuro-rehabilitation settings since that time.
