Ritu grew up in a small group of islands in India, the Andaman & Nicobar Islands, but came to the United States because she had always wanted to move to the “land of opportunities” – the home of modern day occupational therapy.
Ritu has over fifteen years of experience working as an occupational therapist. Much of that time was spent working with kids who have autism or poor self-regulation and behaviors, helping them to become independent in their daily life skills and to appropriately manage their behaviors. She enjoys working as an occupational therapist because it offers her lots of room for creativity in the workplace and because the atmosphere is dynamic and lively due to the children who are her patients.
Ritu’s favorite ways to spend a free afternoon include playing a game of Uno with her son or doing her daughter’s makeup and nails. She resides with her husband and two children in Duluth.
