Vice Chair, Department of Occupational Therapy

Associate Professor

I joined Creighton in 2010 serving as an Academic Clinical Education Coordinator. I currently also serve as Vice Chair of the Occupational Therapy Department and Capstone Coordinator.  In my time as a faculty member I have engaged in developing our first occupational therapy fellowship program for pediatric therapists as well as two additional fellowship programs within the occupational therapy department. With a pediatric practice background I provide limited clinical services through Creighton Pediatric Therapy for the BoysTown School system and preschool and mentor the pediatric fellow in this practice area.  As an integral art of the clincial education team I provide student advising for clinial plans of study and teach in the clinical education seminars and rotation courses.  I also provide mentorship to students completing their doctoral capstone experiences specifically in academia or school-based practice.  

Research Focus
