Meet the Team
Since 1996, I have been providing Occupational Therapy to clients of various ages. In the past 20 years, I have worked directly with children and their families in the school setting, private setting and clinic setting. I have extensive experience in Sensory Integrative disorders. I am SIPT certified and experienced in creating sensory lifestyles to address individualized needs.
I have provided quality services to clients by providing them with the professional care they deserve.
I am also a mother to 5 children and have personal as well as professional experience with children with special needs. I am married to an amazing and supportive high school teacher, and together we are raising 8 children. As a blended family, I have a unique perspective on family life and helping each member to feel loved, accepted and to succeed.
Megan Reeves is a certified occupational therapy assistant who graduated from Florida State University in 2014. She then went on to coach the Florida State University Ladies’ Ultimate Team for the 2014-2015 season. Seeking a new sense of purpose, she moved to Ft. Lauderdale. She embraced her first employment opportunity with Head to Toe Kids Therapy working in the clinic, private school, and home health settings. She then switched to working with families predominantly in the home setting while working for AMP Pediatric Therapy. She fell in love with home health care because of the specialization of intervention and comfort than one can provide in the home. She enjoys creating strategies to meet needs of the child and family that can be utilized so that the child can flourish in all aspects of his or her life.
“As a child, I faced struggles with ADHD. Throughout grade school, I could see my peers excelling around me as I slowly fell behind. Fortunately, my parents noticed and placed me in karate classes in order to further meet my attention and sensory needs.I did not realize this at the time, but that is really where my occupational therapy journey began as I taught valuable skills such as communication, body awareness, proprioception, and sensory regulation to those who needed it most.”
“As a clinician I value collaborative efforts between the therapy team and the families to identify the strategies that will work best for each family. I utilize a solution-focused approach to help enhance the abilities that each child possesses. I approach each child with empathy in order to help develop the skills he or she needs to succeed. I am detail-oriented and adaptive, and I look forward to working with your family to help you achieve your goals.”
Ana Perez is a certified occupational therapy assistant who has experience in Occupational Therapy as an intern in LAUSD as well as in a medical setting. Ana is ready to begin making a difference in the lives of children. She attended CBD College in Los Angeles and completed her training in 2019. Ana is a professional who decided to change fields in order to improve the lives of others.
Ana may be entering the OT field as a professional, but she has years of experience with using therapeutic techniques. Ana describes herself in this way:
My mother is a pediatrician. Growing up, I loved children but did not want to be a pediatrician. I obtained a degree in business management and pursued a career. Then my nephew was diagnosed with autism. During our research to find something helpful to him, I found Occupational Therapy. The idea of helping others (and specifically children) led me to make the decision to become a COTA.
I am a reliable and professional Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant with excellent patient care skills who takes a compassionate approach to those struggling with life’s basic activities. I am detail-oriented. I look forward to meeting you and helping your family achieve your goals.
Ana is also bilingual, speaking Spanish and English.
