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. 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, trails, fire building, hikes, canoes . . .) and along the way to grow confident creative individuals with the tools to thrive in a multi sensory environment.
I'm an Atlanta native, but have called Nashville home for the past 4.5 years. I currently live in a cozy flat with my wife, Barb, and my succulent garden. My favorite way to start the day is with a cup of tea and the sunrise on my balcony.
