Discipline: Occupational Therapy
Faculty Mentor: Stephen F. Gilson, Ph.D.
My name is Jennifer Cammack. I have been a practicing occupational therapist for 15 years, with the majority of my work in pediatrics and specializing in children with autism. I have also started a non-profit hippotherapy and therapeutic riding program for children with special needs. I continue consulting work in schools and am currently working with adolescent populations getting ready to transition into adulthood. I have always been very interested and passionate about neurology, and child development.
I am the mother of 2 kids, 4 horses, 15 chickens, 2 cats, 2 dogs, and a rabbit. I am happily married to a wonderful man who is a nurse. I am fortunate enough to live in a home that is positioned between a lake and my farm. I love being outside as much as possible—horseback riding, swimming, kayaking, running, boating, biking and playing with friends. I also love reading and photography (thus, this head shot—a rare one of me as I am usually taking the pics—at a wedding—I am usually in muck boots!)
I am really looking forward to the LEND experience.
