Hi there! I’m Whitney, one of the occupational therapist’s here at Dream Riders. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2017 with my bachelor’s in psychology. I then went to Carroll University to get my master’s in occupational therapy. After graduating in 2019, I got a job in pediatrics and have been working with kids ever since! Prior to starting OT school, I knew that I wanted to work with kids. Making a difference in the lives of children and their families is so incredibly rewarding. I truly have the best job and the added component of using the horses as part of therapy makes all the difference. When I am not at work, I spend my time wedding planning (I get married in October, yay!) or hanging out with my fiancé and our puppy, Phoenix. I also love to travel, be outdoors, and read new books!
