As Occupational Therapist, Sarah helps our un’ina, “those who come to us,” regain skills to do the things they need and want to do in their day-to-day lives. Occupational Therapy takes a holistic approach to address fine and gross motor, coordination, balance, sensory, vision, psychosocial, and cognitive skills.
Sarah specializes in women’s health, pelvic floor, lactation, and lymphedema. This includes, but is not limited to, pregnancy and post-partum care, breastfeeding support, pelvic pain, prolapse, incontinence, sexual pain and dysfunction, as well as various other pelvic health concerns.
Sarah also serves a broad spectrum of needs, including neurological disorders, upper extremity injury and dysfunction, caregiver training, driving evaluations, wheelchair assessments, cognition, fine motor skills, ergonomic and home safety assessments, and any activity of daily living with which assistance is needed.
Sarah earned her Masters of Occupational Therapy from the University of North Dakota. Sarah was drawn to occupational therapy because of the opportunity to spend time with un’ina to help them reach their goals in creative and fun ways. She places an emphasis on person-centered care and improving quality of life.
Sarah hopes to continue to increase awareness of women’s health, breastfeeding, lymphedema, and pelvic health, which she sees as an underserved need. On a personal level, Sarah is happy with her decision to move to Alaska. When she’s not in the office, she enjoys playing with her husky, reading, hiking, fishing, camping, kayaking, and anything else outdoors.
