Whitney graduated with her clinical doctorate in occupational therapy (OTD) in 2020. Whitney fell in love with pediatric therapy while completing some of her training at a children’s hospital, primarily serving children with complex neurological and orthopedic conditions. Her love for pediatrics, in particular, is due to children’s inclination towards fun, curiosity, and exploration. As part of her doctoral program, Whitney spent time in South-Eastern Europe sharing this passion for pediatric therapy by teaching bachelor-level OT students about pediatric treatment and intervention in partnership with her site mentor. Whitney’s passion is educating caregivers, community members, and students about ways to love and support people with disabilities through inclusive and adaptive means. In the clinic, Whitney tries to incorporate imagination, story-telling, and play as much as possible to motivate her clients. When not playing in the clinic, you can find Whitney playing at some of her favorite spots – at the beach, in a dance class, on a volleyball court, in the kitchen, or on her couch.
