Stephanie Simons, MOTR / L
Stephanie has always had a passion for working with children, in part thanks to her Hispanic upbringing. As part of that heritage, Stephanie is well versed in Hispanic culture and is fluent in both English and Spanish. Prior to becoming an occupational therapist, she was a preschool teacher and camp counselor for over 7 years. Stephanie learned the value of investing her time and energy in others from her volunteer work at the Gold Coast Down Syndrome Organization and her time volunteering with Life Kids. She understands and values the joy and satisfaction that accompany working in Pediatrics.
Her time at Barry University gave her the experience and knowledge to provide children the best intervention and the drive to continue her education through her career. She is currently working toward becoming Sensory Integration Certified. Stephanie is elated to be part of the great team of therapists at InterPlay. Thanks to her drive for continually improving professional practice and passion for every child, Stephanie is able to encourage and inspire those she works with to greater achievements.
