She began her career serving clients in the home health setting before founding Little Red Wagon Pediatric Therapy in 2016.

When she’s not working to help our families reach their goals, you’ll find her chasing after her soon-to-be three-year-old and five-year-old around town, expanding her cooking skills (aspiring to be like her mom who is an amazing cook) or at home enjoying a nice cup of coffee.
