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. 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 Morgan 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 all around West Los Angeles.
In the Fall of 2014, Jennifer created the new Occupational Therapy program at Park Century School. She is thrilled to have her OT services with mOST integrated into students’ daily schedule at Park Century School. Jennifer continues to enjoy watching Park Century School’s OT program grow to fit the needs of its students and round-out the comprehensive curriculum that the school provides.
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 her ever expanding involvement in the community. Jennifer currently holds positions on the Malibu Chamber of Commerce’s Wellness Committee, the Boys & Girls Club of Malibu Wellness Advisory Council, and co-organizes events with THERAsurf, bringing her expertise and exuberance to every interaction she encounters.
