More about Amy
In the same year, she came in second place in the national OT licensure examination. She practiced as a paediatric occupational therapist in the Philippines for four years where she honed her skills in various treatment approaches such as Bobath NDT, Ayres’ Sensory Integration and DIR Floortime. She worked closely with Physiotherapists, Speech Therapists, Special Education Teachers, and Psychologists. Upon moving to Canada in 2015, she continued her practice in paediatrics in private clinics within Metro Vancouver.
Amy is keen on providing the best evidence-based treatment strategies by engaging in continuing education and professional development courses. She completed the USC (University of Southern California) Sensory Integration Continuing Education Certificate Program and STAR Institute’s Level 1 Intensive Mentorship (for Sensory Integration). She also completed the SOS Approach to Feeding Training Conference and DIR Floortime 101, in addition to other skill and case specific courses. She has a vast experience handling children with DCD, sensory processing challenges, ASD, Cerebral Palsy, developmental delays and genetic disorders.
Amy has been interested with health science since childhood and knew at a young age she wanted to work in healthcare. When she learned about occupational therapy, she knew it was a perfect match for her. She has a big heart for people (especially children) in need and she made it her life’s mission to help them engage in meaningful occupations. Seeing her clients gain or regain function and find meaning in life drives her to work even harder.
In her free time, she enjoys cooking, baking and crafting. She also loves to travel to new places with her family. It is her dream to set foot on every continent in the world.
