Amy Lowman – Occupational Therapist Assistant
I am an Arizona native and I have had a love for teaching and helping others since I was a little girl. Through out my career, I have taken on many roles- from paraprofessional, teacher assistant, habilitation/respite provider and art teacher working with children with special needs, to spending time working with clients with brain injuries and mental illnesses. Throughout these experiences I have learned that helping kids grow and reach their full potential is exactly what I want to do. I graduated with an Associates of Applied Science for Occupational Therapy in 2014. I am working towards one day achieving a Doctorate degree in Occupational Therapy so I can continue to help those around me as much as possible. I am a huge animal lover and strong advocate for animal rescue!
