With over 20 years at U of M, and 11 years on her current OT team, Kristen’s highlights of her career include rotating among General Medicine units, Intensive Care Units, Emergency Room & Observation units, Lymphedema care, Neurology, Inpatient Psychiatry, Oncology, Orthopedic, Cardiac, and Pulmonary care units.

Kristen is driven to help others because of her own battle with health and independence as a child and young adult. Her greatest value could be best described as “carpe diem” : seize the day, and her desire to help others to do the same. Her passion is to demonstrate and share how to improve quality of life through engagement in self care and purposeful activity that is sustainable.
