Reina received her OTA Associates degree in August of 2020 from St. Catherine University. With a big passion for working with children, she started her career in the pediatric home health setting after graduation. Reina has 15+ years experience working with the pediatric community including at childcare facilities, as well as being a teaching assistant in a special education preschool classroom setting working with many diagnoses such as Autism, ADD/ADHD, Down Syndrome, Sensory Processing Disorder, and many others. Reina prides herself on her ability to put the “fun” in functional through play that is complimented by her sunny disposition.
For leisure, Reina enjoys kayaking, playing volleyball and pickleball, delights in family time, and tending to her very needy cat’s every wish and desire. She is very excited to be joining the amazing team at OT Connection and looks forward to working with the children at the clinic.
