Owner & Occupational Therapist
Jennifer has always enjoyed working with children, and it is clear from her experiences that they enjoy working with her. From camp counselor to preschool teacher, and working in early intervention, private sensory clinics, and school based settings, Jennifer has found her true calling owning her private practice. After graduating from USC with a Master's Degree in Occupational Therapy, Jennifer worked for SMMUSD as the Occupational Therapist for Malibu schools. While working at Malibu schools, she realized there was a strong need for private therapeutic services in Malibu. With the support of local parents, teachers, therapists, and educators, Jennifer opened Malibu Occupational & Speech Therapy, LLC in August of 2013.
Since then, her practice has continued to grow, and she has been able to help dozens of local children and families in the Malibu and surrounding communities of West Los Angeles. In Fall of 2015, Jennifer created, and now runs, the new Occupational Therapy program at Park Century School- an innovative institution that specializes in preparing students with learning challenges for high school and beyond. Her practice allows her the freedom to work on a wide range of skills with her clients, and she tailors a therapeutic program for each child. Jennifer is passionate about her work, and this is reflected in everything she does at mOST.
