Getting to Know Us

Welcome to Pediatric Foundations! My name is Kristen and I have been providing pediatric occupational therapy services in home, community, and school settings since 2010. My heart is happiest when in nature and in the mountains. You can often find my family enjoying the great outdoors through mountain biking, camping, hiking, skiing, or just playing in the mud. 

My passion for feeding therapy has grown over the last few years as I constantly found myself with a lack of places to refer my existing clients to for advanced support in feeding, oral motor control, or picky eating. Pediatric Foundations was born out a need to fill that service gap. 

I have completed extensive training in the world of feeding, including the following courses:

- Beckman Oral Motor Assessment and Intervention Protocol

- Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) Approach to Feeding

- Mealtime Miseries: Management of Complex Feeding Disorders

- Using Crumbs as a Tool in Pediatric Feeding Transitions 

- Improving Eating Behaviours in Children with Feeding Aversions

- Feed the Peds 

- and counting!
