Waldorf Remedial Therapist
Ms. Sunny has loved living in Flagstaff for 11 years. She has 4 children, ranging in age from 8-24 years old. Three of her children have or are attending Pine Forest. She is originally from a small (14 mile) island in the Puget Sound in Washington state called Vashon Island.
Ms. Sunny has a degree in Community Health Education from Central Washington University, and a degree in Occupational Therapy from The University of Puget Sound.
She has been a Pediatric Occupational Therapist for almost 20 years and has focused her areas of specialty to sensory integration, autism, and learning disabilities/educational kinesiology.
Ms. Sunny recently received a certification in Waldorf Educational Support/Therapy from the Association for a Healing Education. In addition to working at Pine Forest, she has a private practice where she provides occupational therapy and learning support to many families in Flagstaff, and around the world via Skype. She has trained physician's around the world, and was recently a featured speaker on the Autism Global Summit, a summit to educate families and other practitioners on the biomedical approach to helping people with autism and other challenges, such as PANS/PANDAS.
In her free time, Ms. Sunny loves to hike, run, travel, do yoga, meditate, and experiment in the kitchen. She has developed quite a repertoire of gluten free, dairy free, grain free, vegan, vegetarian, raw, paleo, and ketogenic recipes. So, if you ever need a recipe to meet a specific dietary need, there is a really good chance she has one!
