Hi, my name is Suzie and I am very excited to get to know you and your family. I hope you will feel at ease knowing that I bring almost 30 years of experience in working with children ages birth to 18 years including children with Special Needs. In that time, I have worked in Preschools in San Diego as a Preschool teacher, co-director and director. I have volunteered in Children's ministries from AWANA, Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. I have spent the last 10 years working in homes, clinics and schools with children and their families providing Occupational Therapy services as well as providing parent's with education to continue therapy activities in the home. I have raised two wonderful children, who are now grown on their own or at home finishing their education. I feel I am patient and playful when working with children. I am not afraid to be silly, which can entertain children and help them to feel more comfortable. I am able to build rapport using skills developed over years of working with a range of personalities, abilities and challenges. I look foward to bringing my patience, experience and passion for working with you and your family.
