Owner & Occupational Therapist
Jennifer is a pediatric occupational therapist with a decade of experience practicing occupational therapy, and many more years of experience working with children in a variety of settings. Jennifer completed her M.A. in Occupational Therapy from the University of Southern California, where she received a federally funded grant enabling her to train specifically in School Based Occupational Therapy. Upon graduating from USC, Jennifer worked in early intervention, then went on to work for the Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District as the occupational therapist overseeing all Malibu public schools including the preschool, Point Dume Marine Science School, Webster Elementary, Juan Cabrillo, Malibu Middle School and Malibu High School. While working in the Malibu schools, she realized there was a strong need for private therapeutic services in Malibu. With the support of local parents, educators, practitioners, and colleagues, Jennifer opened Malibu Occupational & Speech Therapy (mOST) in August of 2013. Since then, her practice has continued to grow, and she has been able to help dozens of local children and families in Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Calabasas, and surrounding communities of West Los Angeles.
In the Fall of 2014, Jennifer created the new Occupational Therapy program at Park Century School, an innovative institution that specializes in preparing students with learning differences for high school and beyond. She is thrilled to have her services with mOST become a part of Park Century School’s academic and enrichment program, and she has enjoyed watching the OT program at Park Century School become an even more comprehensive curriculum for its students.
Jennifer’s specialized training includes Handwriting Without Tears, Interactive Metronome, Reflex Integration, Sensory Processing Integration, ALERT Program, and more. Parents, teachers, professionals, and especially the children she works with, enjoy having Jennifer as their OT; they appreciate her expertise, and her efficient and direct approach to helping them grow to their fullest potential. Jennifer’s practice allows her the freedom to work on a wide range of skills with clients, and she tailors a therapeutic program for each child. Jennifer is passionate about her work, and this is reflected in everything she does at mOST.
