Owner; MS, OTR/L
Megan Buckland has been a Licensed Occupational Therapy practitioner since 2014. She has extensive experience in areas from infancy to geriatric, however her true passion has always been pediatrics and adults with developmental disabilities. She has over 10 years of specialized and diverse training that has honed her skills into the therapist she is today. Megan holds a Masters of Science of Occupational Therapy from Cabarrus College of Health Science, a Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Appalachian State University, and an Associates degree as a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant.
Lively Therapy Services, LLC is a dream that was born from Megan's deep seated desire to help families and their children achieve their highest level of potential, no matter the odds. This help will take on many forms and will be customized to each child's or family's unique needs but it might include assisting families with their child's daily routine, picky or problems with feeding, or adapting to sensory stimuli.
Megan has extensive training in pediatric treatments that include: Sensory Integration, Learning without Tears, Anxious Eaters, Beckman Oral Motor, NDT, Gross Motor, Reflex Integration, Fine Motor and Visual Motor deficits, and is currently certified in Therapeutic Listening. Combined with her time as a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (COTA/L), Megan has over 10 years of experience in the industry.
Lastly, Megan is also an advisory board member of a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant board at a local community college and is an adjutant instructor, helping to shape the future of the OT field by passing on her extensive knowledge to the next generation of Therapists.
When Megan is not treating, she is spending time with her Husband, her 2 wonderful children, her dog, and her cat. She loves gardening, reading, and photography when she can find a spare minute but most of all she loves to vacation with her family. Megan is a born and bred mountain girl from Montana and the mountains will always hold a special place in her heart, but the beach is her escape and the ocean will always hold her soul!
