Hi, I'm Natalie, or “Nat” to most. I am an occupational therapist, but I’m also an entrepreneur, an artist, an outdoor adventurer and an athlete - so it's safe to say that I stay pretty busy. I’ve been a pediatric OT since 2011 and in my opinion it’s the best job in the world! My professional passions are currently sensory-motor development, primitive reflex integration and coordination disorders. I'm also a certified TummyTime!™ provider - which means I'm skilled at teaching caregivers how to help their children enjoy tummy time. As you can probably tell, movement is an integral aspect of my treatment style and my life.
I feel so fortunate to run a practice like Sprocket Therapy Solutions where I can pursue all of my passions and empower a whole lot of amazing families along the way. I also work alongside some incredibly talented professionals who I’m lucky enough to learn from on a regular basis.
My dream job is to run a wilderness-based OT program or an outdoor OT program. The plan is to immerse kids in nature (think mud, tents, fire building, hikes, canoes . . .) and along the way to grow confident creative individuals with the tools to thrive in a multi sensory environment.
I grew up in Atlanta, GA, then lived in the NE, then the NW, then back to the SE and in 2011 I graduated with a Masters in OT from Milligan College in East Tennessee. I moved to Nashville in 2013 and love it here!
