Prior to joining Skills 4 Life, Holly worked at Certified Adaptive, where she provided customized seating solutions to children in wheelchairs. Before that, she worked as an Occupational Therapy Aide at Craig Hospital. In her previous positions, Holly provided comprehensive care and functional mobility solutions to children with a range of diagnoses, including cerebral palsy, down syndrome, traumatic brain injury, and spina bifida.
Holly discovered her passion for occupational therapy when doctors diagnosed her mother with a spinal cord tumor that rendered her quadriplegic at the age of 56. Her mother spent six months learning how to adapt to her new life through the caring expertise of occupational therapists. Based on this positive experience, Holly focused her passion and career on occupational therapy and improving the lives of her patients.
