My most favorite things are my family, my career as a pediatric occupational therapist, children, and music. The creation of Aimee's Babies has allowed me to combine all of these wonderful things. Teaching classes and doing baby massage allows me plenty of time with lots of adorable little children, and I am constantly using music in everything that I do.
I graduated from College Misericordia with a BS in Occupational Therapy in 1995. I worked with patients with brain injury at two different rehab facilities. I have also worked as a Pediatric Occupational Therapist in Scranton, Hershey, Reading, and Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Bastrop, Louisiana, Brooklyn, NY, and my hometown of Lititz, Pennsylvania, over the past several years. Between working in brain injury remediation and working with children with developmental delay, I have learned a great deal about brain functioning. My experience in the field paired with hours and hours of research and close observation of my own children's development has given me the foundation for creating my developmental programs. I attained my Baby's First Massage Certification in October of 2003 and began working at the Heart of Lancaster Regional Health Center teaching baby massage to all new parents in August of 2004.
In 2008 I left the hospital to devote more time to Aimee's Babies. I now
travel the country doing early childhood development lectures at hospitals,
daycares and colleges. I do home visits for baby massage instruction and I
am in the process of filming Aimee's Toddlers and Aimee's preschoolers DVDs.
I am also creating new apps and marketing Aimee's Babies Baby Massage app
for the iphone.
