Payton always had a passion for working with kids and the field of psychology. A family friend told her about occupational therapy in high school and she instantly fell in love with the profession. Learning she had her own sensory challenges led her to a better understanding of and connection to the children she treats.
Payton has worked with children from 0-21 years of age with various needs. Payton loves working as a pediatric occupational therapist because it offers her the opportunity to help children reach their full potential and support their families, as well. Payton is trained in both Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) and Beckman Oral Motor feeding methods, Floortime, and reflex integration.
When she is not at work she enjoys spending time with friends and family, being outside walking or enjoying the sun, and reading. Payton currently lives in Chamblee.
