Hi, I'm Natalie, or “Nat” to most. I am an occupational therapist, but I’m also a mom, a wife, entrepreneur, an artist, an outdoor adventurer and an athlete - so it's safe to say that I stay pretty busy. I’ve been a pediatric OT since 2011 and in my opinion it’s the best job in the world!
My professional passions are currently sensory-motor development, primitive reflex integration, coordination disorders and infant development. Movement is an integral aspect of my treatment style and my life. I'm also a certified TummyTime!™ provider - which means I teach caregivers how to help their children enjoy tummy time and to move more comfortably in their bodies. I basically teach parents to play with their babies all day long - and love every second of it!
I am so fortunate to run both Elements and Sprocket Therapy Solutions which allow me to pursue my passions and empower a lot of amazing families along the way. I also work alongside some incredibly talented professionals who I’m lucky enough to learn from on a regular basis.
I'm an Atlanta native, but have called Nashville home for the past 6 years. I currently live in East Nashville with my wife Barb and our brand new son Ari in our new house with the backyard of my dreams. On the weekends I enjoy making stuff (painting, crafting, building), playing outside and catching up with friends. Lately, my favorite way to start the day is playing with Ari on the floor.
