Jennifer strives to provide exceptional care that facilitates client and family-centred goals.

She uses an evidence-based approach to guide her practice and continues to expand her knowledge through continuing education, clinical experience, and self-directed learning.

She collaborates with parents, teachers, and other team members to provide the support needed to promote independence at home or school. Outside of providing therapy, Jennifer is a loyal “hockey mom” and enjoys spending time with her friends and family.
