Kristin completed her fieldwork at Kids on the Point OT, Inc., where she was able to meet and work with many wonderful children and families and gain experience with a variety of diagnoses, including Sensory Processing Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, and learning disabilities. She also completed her fieldwork at a neurorehabilitation clinic, where she gained experience working with adults with strokes and traumatic brain injuries.
In her professional career, Kristin values constant expansion of her skillset through a variety of trainings. Kristin believes that play can be used therapeutically to promote a child’s functionality, creativity, self-confidence, and understanding of the social world. She feels very lucky to work at a clinic that assumes a family-centered approach to support children’s play and independence at home, at school, and in the community.
In her free time, Kristin enjoys surfing, camping, and hiking with her dog, Kiwi.
