Amanda J Senal MA, OTR/L
"I discovered occupational therapy when I was 12 years old and it became my goal for a career. I can honestly say that I practice my dream job, every day that I work. I cherish the moments when children accomplish a simple skill and/or realize their own achievement and the connections and relationships I get to build with children and their families.
