For over 10 years, Amy has practiced occupational therapy in multiple pediatric settings across the United States. Throughout the years, she has developed a passion for working with families with children with sensory processing concerns. She sought out advanced training at the University of Pittsburgh because she wants to add to the knowledge about best practices in treatment for children with sensory processing concerns. Along the way, she has had the opportunity to learn about (and fall in love with) sleep health and the impact of poor sleep on development in children. Her dissertation focuses on measurement of sleep health in children with sensory processing disorder and occupational therapy perspectives on pediatric sleep health.
