My Story

I'm an occupational therapist who specializes in neurological rehabilitation, and one of the first pioneering occupational therapists in the field of brain-computer interfaces and neuroprosthetics. I have served in a variety of roles, including neurological rehabilitation in day treatment, outpatient rehabilitation center in St. Louis, MO, a clinical specialist for the Department of Neurology at Washington University's School of Medicine, and a clinical lead for a variety of rehabilitation companies to develop evidence-based, neurological clinical protocols for their patient populations.  Currently, I work for a company - Neurolutions, which is creating Brain-Computer-Interface (BCI) technology in the stroke rehabilitation space, founder of Advanced Neuro-Rehabilitation, and, of course, I am one of the founders of NeuroVlog.

 

When I'm not working, I spend my time traveling and enjoying good company with friends and family. Some of my favorite travel locations are Whitefish, Montana, Santa Cruz, California, and any warm Caribbean Island.

 

My husband, Steve, and I have three, very-active, children (Chris, Ian, and Nora) and three dogs (Labradors Moose and Watson; and a crazy pug named Gus).

Three "fun facts" about me:

  • My first Black Lab, Zabby, was a tri-pawd (three-legged). I fabricated a custom stifle orthosis for her with my O&P colleagues to have functional mobility on her remaining hind leg!

  • I am a third-generation Bermudian.

  • I owned a Leopard Gecko, who lived for 22 years!
