Gabriella joined InterPlay as a student in September 2020, and after completing her certification and
licensure, she became a full-time Occupational Therapist and member of the team in August 2021.

She graduated with her Bachelors in Exercise Science and Doctorate in Occupational Therapy from Nova Southeastern University in Tampa, Florida. She’s lived in the South Florida since birth and worked at her parents restaurant in Boca Raton, Florida until they retired. Gabriella was a nanny for 11 years in Parkland prior to Interplay. She attended North Broward Preparatory School for middle and high school participating in multiple sports, the fine arts, and coaching/directing programs for the elementary school. Over the past three years, Gabriella has been coaching the City of Boca’s cheerleading team, The Boca Braves. She has a passion for working with children, children with disabilities, and providing a fun and motivating experience in every session. She believes that it is always good to be silly and have the ability to laugh at yourself. “Anyone can achieve their goals over time; but, it’s the most important to me to make
sure the kids are having the most fun while doing so!” She can’t imagine her life without OT and she
believes she is so fortunate her job is to play!!

She is so excited to be a part of the Interplay family and to continue expanding her knowledge of
pediatric OT and become certified in Sensory Integration.

Testimonials

P.B. a grateful mom!

On my search to help my son I had good experiences and not so good ones. But finding InterPlay has been a blessing in the skies. Dr. Pilar and her team are truly the best professionals in the area. Their charisma and compassion, professionalism, knowledge, integrity and quality of care are what every parent (who is struggling with their child) needs. They didn't only help my beautiful boy but my family as a whole. Their understanding of sensory integration and their playful approach to treatment engaged my son and they were able to get out the best of him. In every session they gave their heart and he gave them his best. It just took a couple months for all of us to see the benefits of the treatment. Today, I am glad to say that our family is at peace with our situation, knowing that hard work (as we are guided by the experts at InterPlay) will lead us to the right path ...
