Katie is originally from Pennsylvania where she was born and raised. She attended the University of Scranton and graduated in 2006 with her Master’s of Science in Occupational Therapy. Over the years, Katie has worked with a variety of children with varying exceptionalities including Autism, Down Syndrome, ADHD, Auditory Processing Disorders, Cerebral Palsy, Feeding Concerns, Prematurity, Developmental Delays, and Sensory Processing and Integration Disorders. She has developed and administered a range of treatment plans to improve child’s ability to complete ADLs, IADLs, functional transfers, self-care, fine motor, visual motor, visual perceptual, handwriting, play, sensory regulation, sensory processing, feeding, bilateral integration, direction following, and attention to task in the school, clinic, and home settings.
She started her career at Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital working with populations such as spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, stroke, hip/ knee replacement, amputee, and motor vehicle accidents.
Katie transitioned to the school-based therapy setting in 2008 and spent 10 year working with special education department providing services to students with special needs in the education setting. Over the years in the school system, Katie worked closely with the special education teachers, supervisors, and speech therapist to create and aid in the setup of functional life skills courses and pre-vocational training classes in order to assist with the transition from the school setting to adulthood.
In August 2016, Katie decided to move to the sunny state of Florida. She worked as a pediatric home health therapist providing medical based services in the natural environment including home, school, and daycare setting. Here she worked closely with the parents, teachers, staff, and child to educate and teach strategies and skills to becoming more independent in their natural environment.
Katie transitioned to Central Florida Dreamplex and started as an occupational therapist, but quickly transitioned into the OT Lead role running the Clermont OT department supervising OTR and COTAs. Katie then transitioned into the Therapy and Site Direction for the Clermont location where she supervises the OT, PT, Speech, and Intake Departments. She also assists in program development and management for Dreamplex.
Katie currently has a Feeding Certification (from Feed the Peds course work), Handwriting Certification ( from Learning without Tears/ Handwriting Without Tears), and is an IEP advocate (her experiences in the school system taught her how to understand the educational system and opportunities for a special needs children in the academic setting. While her years as a home health therapist has taught me how to advocate for the parents and caregivers for appropriate educational plans for the child).
Katie is excited to continue to grow both personally and professionally in her role as Therapy and Site Director at Central Florida Dreamplex and assisting and supporting families navigate their ever changing world with their children with special needs.
