Pamela Thompson, CTRS

Recreational Therapist

I started my profession in 1990 working for Cardinal Center as a QMRP overseeing 3 group homes.  I then went to work for Methodist Hospital to start and build their pediatric TR program.  I have been working in pediatrics for the past 17 years until coming to Meaningful Day Services.  I missed working with individuals with developmental disabilities and have found it rewarding to do so in the community setting.  I currently reside in Brownsburg with my husband Kevin, son Kyle, daughter Paige, our cat Butler, and our dog Nikko.
