A place to find fine motor activities and so much more!

I am SO excited to add content about another one of my passions to this website. This site was started as a place to post about my passion for fitness. BUT I have another HUGE passion which also happens to be my career as an Occupational Therapist.

I have been a OT for almost 11 years and have worked most of my career in pediatrics. I LOVE working with children and their families.  It is so rewarding working with them on fine motor activities, sensory motor play and self-care skills. I have worked in outpatient settings, in home, a preschool for children with Autism and now I work in the schools.  Over my 11 years I have gained a ton of knowledge and some pretty strong opinions based on research (yay evidence based practice) and trial and error.  Now I want to share my tips and tricks about OT with you all!

Since my passion is pediatric OT I will be posting a lot about fine motor activities for children.  But I do also have a love for Lymphedema (I never thought I would say that!) and Assistive technology so I will be mixing some of that in as well.

If you found this page I’d love to hear more about you! Are you a OT? A parent looking for fine motor activities? A really great friend who is here to support me?  Comment below 🙂
