Hi, I’m Madeleine! I’m an occupational therapist from Virginia. In 2019 I received my bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience and Spanish from the University of Notre Dame. In 2022 I completed my doctorate in occupational therapy through Washington University in St. Louis.
In between academic semesters, I’ve worked with children at a therapeutic nursery center for toddlers who’ve experienced trauma, as well as at a therapeutic summer camp for children with complex medical needs. While in class, I worked as a personal care assistant for individuals with neurological disorders.
I completed fieldwork training at the Polytrauma Transitional Rehabilitation Program for active-duty service members and veterans at a VA hospital in California, and then at an inpatient rehabilitation center in Colorado.
I spent my doctoral capstone working at a center for individuals who’ve experienced brain injury in Madrid, Spain. I also helped translate research at the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, and learned about differing approaches to healthcare, occupational therapy education, and patient advocacy in Spain and the United States.
While studying for the board certification exam (NBCOT), I worked as a bilingual patient specialist with families pursuing genetic counseling and testing for their children with rare genetic diseases. I completed my certification in December 2022.
In my free time, I love to run, play the cello, and go on adventures with my dog.
I specialize in neurorehabilitation, cognitive strategies, & communication strategies.
I recently moved to Berlin, and I’m looking forward to learning and growing as a professional.
I speak English & Spanish.
