She has worked at NIH, HSC Pediatric Center, adult group homes and in schools. For the past 14 years, she has worked for her local school system in their early intervention program. Recently, she has published four peer review journal articles on standing programs, two on gait trainers and two on power mobility. She is certified for General Movement Assessment, a tool which has a 92-98% success rate at identifying which 2-5 month old infants will have cerebral palsy.
