Carolyn Kelley, OTR/L

Occupational Therapist

Carolyn decided to meld her love of movement with her love of children during graduate school in Oregon when her anatomy teacher there introduced her to Occupational Therapy. As she began her studies in OT she soon realized that her years of teaching Montessori preschool and working with one particular 3 year old, whetted her interest in OT long before she knew what it was.
