Katelyn obtained her Bachelor of Applied Science in Child, Youth & Family Studies from the University of Guelph, and her Master of Science in Occupational Therapy from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. Following the completion of her occupational therapy degree in 2016, Katelyn had the unique opportunity to work for the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT) where she was involved in a number of research and advocacy-based projects which she now uses to inform her clinical practice.
Katelyn has clinical experience working with clients of all ages in a wide variety of settings, including in hospitals, schools, and the community. Prior to joining the Modern OT team, Katelyn worked within the school system providing school-based occupational therapy services to students to address a wide range of physical, cognitive, and sensory-based issues.
Katelyn considers herself a life-long learner and regularly participates in continuing education and training related to: functional cognition for employment; coaching and mentorship; concussion management; and motivational interviewing for health care professionals. Katelyn is also a Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP) provider.
In addition to her clinical work, Katelyn is involved with academia. She has served as a Term-Adjunct Lecturer in the Queen’s University School of Rehabilitation, delivering lectures on the topics of brain injury, spinal cord injury, and multiple sclerosis rehabilitation to occupational therapy students. Katelyn is also currently a doctoral candidate in the Doctor of Science in Rehabilitation and Health Leadership program at Queen’s University. Her research hopes to explore how healthcare professionals and rehabilitation programs can best support client recovery following involvement in motor vehicle accidents.
In her free time, Katelyn enjoys reading, cooking, and staying active. She can often be found at Gatineau Park on weekends hiking or cycling.
