Bio

Right out of high school, Sean spent four years on active duty serving in the Air Force. This is where his journey to becoming an occupational therapist (OT) began. Sean knew that he wanted to use his military benefits to pursue a career in which he could continue to serve others. As an occupational therapist, Sean loves to work with children and adolescents in their two biggest life occupations; play and learning. Sean believes that movement is the key to unlocking the potential of the brain and body connection and strives to be a positive role model for his patients. Sean is a recent graduate but has experience as an OT working in public schools, vocational training centers, and in acute care rehabilitation. Throughout his experience Sean found his passion for working with children, adolescents, and young adults. Sean is a big advocate for early intervention and believes in collaborating with patients and their families when setting goals.

Sean is originally from Nevada but grew up most of his adolescent life in Southwest Michigan. Shortly after leaving the military, Sean and his wife had their first child, a boy, while both attending college full-time and working part-time. Shortly after finishing his graduate degree, they welcomed their second son into the world and love spending time as a family. Outside of work, Sean loves to spend the weekends at Lake Michigan with his stand-up paddle board. Some of his other hobbies include keeping aquariums, exercising, learning, and spending time exploring the beautiful landscapes of Michigan.
