Strengths in the field:

Lindsay has known for many years that she wanted to work with children. From babysitting gigs in high school, to tutoring elementary children in college, to working one on one with a teenager in grad school, she has always sought out opportunities to connect with children. She loves building relationships with the children she treats and incorporating their interests into sessions.

Lindsay completed a 3 month fieldwork placement at an outpatient pediatric clinic in Wake Forest, NC. She worked with children with autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit disorder, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, sensory processing differences, developmental delays, and more. As part of her time at ECU, she was involved in a week long Driving and Community Mobility “Bootcamp” for teens and young adults with ASD. She spent extensive time planning for the bootcamp and ensuring each participant felt comfortable and ready to learn. She also spent 3 months working with adult stroke patients in an inpatient rehabilitation facility. From these experiences, she learned the importance of communicating with families, utilizing evidence-based practice, and approaching treatment sessions with creativity.

She considers herself to be a lifelong learner and is excited to continue learning and growing as a pediatric OT!

Personal Interests:

Lindsay grew up in Wilmington and is excited to be back home! Her personal interests include trying local coffee shops with her husband, going for walks, reading, and spending time with her parents and brother.
