Emma earned a bachelor’s degree in Health Science from Truman State University and a master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from Washington University in St. Louis. She’s always had a love for pediatrics and is passionate about delivering family-centered, fun, and evidence-based care to the children she serves. Emma’s favorite sessions are those in which she’s able to follow a child’s lead and incorporate his or her personal interests as much as possible. Whether using video clips of Sonic to teach emotional regulation or creating a Frozen game to work on fine motor skills, it brings her great joy to see kiddos excited, engaged, and progressing in their goals. Emma is thrilled to start her occupational therapy career at CI and to be a member of such a caring, creative, and compassionate team. In her free time, she enjoys hammocking, listening to music, and trying new restaurants.
