- What is the most important part of your therapy session?
The most important part of my sessions and my job is to make learning and work seem like play. Children learn more when they are having fun and like their teacher/therapist. Likewise, most employees will work harder and put more effort into completing their tasks if they genuinely enjoy their job.

- What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of my job is watching both the children and the employees grow and achieve their goals. Mentoring the therapists to be the absolute best in their field benefits all of the children who come to the clinic. We expect excellence every day and because of that our clients are achieving goals and reaching levels of independence after only a few months of therapy. I love watching the therapists encourage and push each other. The company culture at MBT creates an environment that makes growth and achievement easy and fun for therapists, parents, and clients. I just love watching individuals grow and thrive.
