Making changes in children's lives makes for a great life!

1.)  You touch the lives of children and their families every day.  What do you find to be the most meaningful or rewarding part of  your work?
I feel so fortunate to work with children everyday!  My absolute favorite is the look on a child's face after weeks of hard work when they realize that they CAN do something. What a rewarding job we have!

2.)  We have a unique setting for PTS. What do like most about our setting?
Touchstone Therapy truly is a unique place.  I love that we have the opportunity to work side by side with OT's.  This allows for a team approach to the care of our clients. I also like the open and child friendly atmosphere of Touchstone that creates a child directed therapy approach.

3.) What do you love most about your job?
I love that when I come to work, every day is different.  There is certainly never a dull moment when working with kids! We have the opportunity to work with a variety of diagnosis, ages, and abilities in a setting that is fun and engaging.

4.) What is your favorite quote?
"From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life."

5.) Do you have any community recommendations for parents and their children to enjoy?
I feel that participation in community activities is extremely important for developing muscular strength and coordination. I always recommend swimming as an excellent activity that targets all muscle groups and is wonderful for endurance and conditioning as well.

Lindsey holds her doctorate in PT, but also brings a unique perspective to Touchstone with her athletic training experience. She and her new baby, Carter, are pictured above. Happy PT Month,  Lindsey!
