Occupational Therapist Assistant
Beth started out in the field of education and child care, beginning with her first job at a daycare center while still in high school, then graduating with a bachelor’s degree from Eastern Illinois University in early childhood education. After marrying her high school sweetheart, she enjoyed positions as a teacher and director at early childhood centers. Beth was introduced to occupational therapy following the birth of her son. She became increasingly interested in the field of OT as she helped her child with his sensory needs. She returned to school, graduating in 2015 as a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant from Lewis and Clark Community College.
Beth has been passionate about using her education and experience from her life as a mom, plus her former and present careers, to work with children as a pediatric occupational therapy assistant. Now with Milestone Therapy, she continues to strive to help children develop to their fullest potential.
