“I am passionate about occupational therapy and the impact it can have in meeting a young child’s needs when they are experiencing differences in their development. I also believe in helping families learn to meet their children where they are, to focus on strengths and to be resourceful in helping their children meet their potential.” – Kristy Otter, OTR/L
