Hannah graduated from Rowan Cabarrus Community College with an Occupational Therapy Assistant Degree and also has an Associate in Arts Degree. She has always had a passion to work with children stemming from growing up with a large family with 4 brothers and 3 sisters. Having a large family has taught her how to appreciate different personalities and perspectives, accept responsibility, and integrate teamwork. Her passion for Occupational Therapy started first with her pawpaw, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, and later with her little brother, who was born with a neurological disability. It was her passion to understand and teach others that a disability is not what defines a child and that by shaping and modifying the environment around them, caregivers will support their occupational performance for better independence in life. She is beyond excited to begin her occupational therapy journey here at Lively Therapy Services and meet incredible children and parents that will shape her into a better practitioner every day. Hannah loves spending time with family and friends, reading, adventuring out to new places, loving Jesus, and exercising. She is recently married and shares her home with two cats and a dog.
