Jaclyn is very excited to be the occupational therapist here at Strong Foundations. She earned her Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from Quinnipiac University. She has experience working with children of all ages and with a variety of diagnoses such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, developmental delay, various genetic syndromes, as well as children who have difficulties with feeding, social skills, and self-regulation.
She believes every child deserves to engage in his or her meaningful occupations in order to live a purposeful and fulfilling life. Inclusivity has been a common factor throughout her professional journey ranging from forming an adaptive dance program for individuals with disabilities to teaching sign language to Quinnipiac’s American Sign Language Club. Additionally, she was the proud recipient of the Occupational Therapy Centennial Endowed Scholarship for her leadership within the Quinnipiac community.
Outside of work, she is a dog lover and coffee enthusiast. She enjoys watching movies and plays, painting, baking, and playing tennis.
