She began her career in the non-profit sector serving as the director of Programming for the Down Syndrome Association of the Valley where she led a diverse range of advocacy, educational outreach, support, and occupation-based programs. This experience sparked her interest in research and community-based programs to support occupational participation and health of persons with disabilities, which led her to pursue a doctorate of occupational therapy from MGH Institute of Health Professions. Her research interests focus on supporting use of mainstream smart technologies as everyday and assistive technologies in occupation and community-based interventions to improve the health, participation and quality of life of persons with disabilities and underserved populations.
