Amanda earned her bachelor’s degree in Child Psychology from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities. She then received her Occupational Therapy Assistant Degree from Fox Valley Technical College. Amanda has had a wide variety of professional experiences with children and adults alike. For instance, during college she worked with children and adults with disabilities at a daytime care center, with young children in an Autism Day Treatment Program, and as a respite care provider in a family’s home. As a COTA, she has worked in an acute care hospital, a pediatric OT clinic, and a mental health facility. Working in a wide range of settings has allowed Amanda to realize her true passion for pediatric therapy, so she feels honored to be able to assist families through the process. She is excited about being part of the CI team and can’t wait to meet new friends!
