Occupational Therapy Assistant, CCBC Catonsville, MD

Sandi is excited to be joining the LCT&Y team! Even as a child, Sandi loved helping people. She brings 20+ years of experience working with children in various settings – summer camp for special needs children, teaching, child care, home & hospital tutoring for a public school system. Sandi quickly discovered that she enjoyed working with her student/client, and especially connecting with the family and helping them better understand the child’s developmental stage and how to help the family unit function better. It was a student’s mom, also an OTR/L, who encouraged Sandi to consider the field of OT. This mom also invited Sandi to spend time at a pediatric therapy clinic and a skilled nursing facility where the mom worked. This was when Sandi fell in love with the field of OT and the idea of helping people and families live life to its fullest.
Sandi is new to Florida, and when she’s not working, she can be found enjoying the beautiful Florida sunshine and landscapes – especially the beach. She also enjoys spending time with friends and family, reading and playing pickleball.
