Jill has been a practicing pediatric occupational therapist for over 30 years. She helps parents and educators understand the importance of sensory-motor development for the overall wellbeing of the child. After receiving her undergraduate degree at the University of Pennsylavania, Jill received a Masters in Counseling and Human Relations at Villanova University and a teaching fellowship at New York University. She is SIPT certified and has advanced training in Sensory Integration and Sensory Processing Disorders. Along with writing, blogging and “playing” with children, she gives workshops to parents and teachers, helping them see the huge impact motor skills have on overall health and happiness of the child, and that creating a great athlete is merely a positive side effect!
Along with her private practice and consulting, Jill is the mother of three children, including boy-girl twins and a grandmother. She is an avid organic gardener, cyclist and enjoys swimming.
