ABOUT

A life care plan is a vital part of creating a path for one's future that outlines both the medical and non-medical needs of an individual over their lifetime related to their specific disability- whether from a catastrophic injury or chronic health condition. Over the past 18 years, I have practiced as a licensed occupational therapist in the long term care, acute inpatient rehabilitation, and outpatient therapy environments.
