Most Memorable Patient:

  • It is difficult to pick just one child to say is my most memorable patient. Each child I service holds a very special place in my heart that I will forever cherish. I am blessed to be on their journey and to share my knowledge with all the incredible families I have worked with while being a therapist for Florida Elks Children's Therapy Services.
