Recreational Therapist

I am a graduate from Indiana State University. I did my internship with Meaningful Day Services. There I worked with children and adults with mental and physical disabilities. I have worked with adolescents and adults ranging from ages 12 to 62. Working with individuals with disabilities has always been a passion of mine and something that I enjoy. I enjoy the part of showing my clients their abilities no matter their disability.

My experience is working with individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities and also those diagnosed with Austim.

I use exercise, athletic games, electronic devices, and social games as therapy interventions.
