Daniela is our fabulous aide, coming to the rescue of therapists by helping with sessions, preparation, cleanup, you name it! We're lucky to have her! Here's what she says about herself:
Hello, I'm Daniela! Growing up as an honors student-athlete, my own experiences sparked my interest in human movement and exercise physiology. By combining my passions of working with children, helping others achieve their goals, and doing what brings them meaning in life, this has lead me to continue my education as a future Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant.
When I'm not continuing my education or coaching, you can find me practicing self-care, being creative with hair/makeup, working out, spending quality time with my family, besties, boyfriend, and my nephew!
