Erin grew up in Oklahoma where she attended The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center and received her master’s degree in occupational therapy.  Her kind and compassionate personality, as well as her positive outlook on life, are traits that have helped mold her into the person and therapist she is today.  From the start, Erin had a passion for helping others; specifically, children and their families.  She ultimately decided to become an occupational therapist after seeing the positive impact she could have on a family and children’s lives.  Erin not only loves helping children be the best they could be and reach their full potential, but also loves getting to know each child, as well as their family, and having the opportunity be a part of their life.
