Maggie is excited to be joining the BBA team as an occupational therapist! She grew up in the city of Chicago and loves attending cubs games at Wrigley Field. She graduated from the University of Michigan in 2016 with her Bachelor’s degree in Movement Science from the School of Kinesiology. Most recently, she attended Washington University in St. Louis, where she received her Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy in 2018. During her time at WashU, she had the opportunity to work with infants in the neonatal intensive care unit, providing age appropriate sensory interventions, parental education and support.

Maggie has previously worked with both adults and children in various settings, including, elementary and therapeutic schools, private clinics, acute care hospitals and an adult outpatient rehabilitation institute. She is passionate about supporting children and their families in order to grow and develop into the next chapters of their lives. She is thrilled to be working in a multidisciplinary, collaborative setting, and is looking forward to a great year at BBA!
