Courtney has been an Occupational Therapist for nine years with the primary focus in geriatrics and psychiatry. She has specialized in managing challenging behaviors in the aging population through positive engagement in exercise, sensory stimulation/ modulation, and task activities. Her fall risk prevention and strategies has resulted in a significant fall decline in her patients. She has focused her energy on determining the most effective cognitive assessments through research and connecting with OTs who work in the mental health community.
