Clare McCullough is an Occupational Therapist who learned how to help children with Sensory Processing Disorder from her firsthand experience growing up a "sensory kid." Blessed to be a part of a big family with parents who intuitively parented with intention for her needs, Clare had wonderfully diverse opportunities to develop her mind and soul, giving her a very holistic perspective in working with children. Clare graduated from Hope College in 2011 with a Bachelor's degree in Spanish and Psychology and then went on to complete her Masters in Occupational Therapy from Western Michigan University, graduating in December 2013. She has worked for six years in an outpatient pediatric clinic and public schools in the Chicago suburbs after she returned to Northwest Indiana to be with her family. When she is not learning from and with children and their families, Clare enjoys spending time with her family, reading, being in nature and FaceTiming with her fiance who lives in Chile. Since Coronavirus quarantines began, Clare has begun undertaking a personal goal of creating a website where she will provide reviews of research articles on topics within pediatric Occupational Therapy.
