Occupational Therapy MiamiVanessa is a bilingual licensed occupational therapist. She attended Florida International University (FIU), where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Health sciences, a minor in psychology and a minor in health service administration.  Her desire to help others and her love for children encouraged her to pursue a career in occupational therapy.

While completing her graduate studies, Vanessa was exposed to various settings where she provided therapy to both adult and pediatric populations. She completed clinical rotations in a pediatric outpatient clinic, a rehabilitation hospital, and a community center for adults diagnosed with mental illness.

Vanessa’s goal is to continue to expand her knowledge in the field of occupational therapy and continue to grow as a therapist.
