Kaitlin always knew she wanted to go into healthcare but once she found the field of pediatric occupational therapy, she knew that was the perfect career for her. Growing up, Kaitlin loved helping out with children in Special Olympics, coaching lacrosse, and serving in the kids area at her church. As an OT, Kaitlin loves the opportunity to help others do the things they need and want to do each day, the opportunities for continuous learning, and applying ideas of human physiology/anatomy and development to her work. Kaitlin moved to Boston in 2019 from Ohio to attend MGH Institute of Health Professions where she earned her Doctorate in Occupational Therapy in 2022. Since graduating from OT school, Kaitlin has worked in outpatient pediatrics and inpatient rehab where she worked with patients post-TBI, post-stroke, as well as pediatrics. In her free time, Kaitlin loves going on walks along the harbor, trying out the endless restaurants around the city with her husband, and game nights with friends.
