Teri, MS, OTR/L

Occupational Therapist
Team Member Since: 2020


Teri graduated from the University of Mary with a Bachelor of Science degree in University Studies in 2018 and later obtained her Master of Science in Occupational Therapy from the same school. While most individuals working to achieve a master-level degree enroll for 6 years, she completed her degree in 4.5 years.

Teri has always had a passion for kids. Throughout her college years, she worked for an after-school program and later provided respite care for families with kids with special needs. That experience, combined with fieldwork in an outpatient pediatric facility, solidified for her the importance of emotional regulation and how it affects every part of a child’s life. She is excited to apply her education and personal experience to help children and their families.

Why did you choose a career in pediatrics?

I love helping kids become more independent in meaningful occupations. It not only helps the kids but the family unit to have a more enjoyable life.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I enjoy cooking, crafting, reading, being outside and spending time with family and friends.
