Mildred (Milly) is a certified and licensed Occupational Therapist who received her Occupational Therapy degree from California State University, Dominguez Hills in 2002. Milly immediately began working in Pediatrics at the Children’s Center at Simi Valley Hospital in California where she completed her internship and worked for a year, starting her professional journey in the pediatric world. In 2003, Milly moved to Arizona and continued working in pediatrics. She has found her true calling in pediatrics and has worked in this setting since. She has worked in private therapy clinics, in private schools, and home health.

She has been fortunate to have been mentored personally by the late Lorna Jean King at CCNS on sensory processing disorders and sensory integration. She is also SIPT certified and has taken several courses training her in sensory integration. She is also trained in Handwriting Without Tears, in the Wilbarger Brushing protocol and in creating sensory diets. Because of her playful nature, Milly has always been drawn to working with children with special needs especially children with Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder. She is constantly taking courses (ALERT program, The Listening Program, Carol Kranowitz’ sensory courses, Lori Overland’s Sensory Motor Approach) to refine her skills as a pediatric occupational therapist so she could best serve her clients and their families. She also has training in Applied Behavior Analysis and Social Thinking.

When not at work, Milly spends her free time weight training and relaxing with her husband. She spends her weekends teaching religious education to kids with special needs and kids that attend her church and volunteers for her church to feed the poor and visit the sick in the community.
