I began working for the Jefferson City School District in 2015, providing services at Southwest Early Childhood Center and Lawson Elementary, but my experience with the School District started with a fieldwork internship in the spring of 2010 as an Occupational Therapy student. I graduated with my Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from Rockhurst University in Kansas City. For 5 years I worked with the geriatric population as an Occupational Therapist, mainly at St. Joseph and Heisinger Bluffs here in Jefferson City. Today, I continue to provide services at Southwest Early Childhood Center, and love having the opportunity to help children maximize their abilities as they begin their journey in the school system. I love spending my free time with my wife, Katie, daughter Isabella, and sons Oliver and Isaac. We enjoy our time at the family farm in St. Thomas and watching the St. Louis Cardinals.
