Hi! I am Courtney, an occupational therapist, board certified behavior analyst, and a mom to 2 kids! OT OuTside started as an Instagram account in 2015 when I was home with a 2 year old and infant. I hope to inspire OTs and caregivers with easy, fun, and intentional ways to connect with children and knowledge about the benefits of play, sensory experiences, and process art.

OT OuTside has evolved into a weekly toddler group to bring together parents and tots for sensory based activities and process art projects.

When I’m not getting messy with toddlers, I see clients privately in their home or out exploring nature to give parents tangible ideas and support they can do without fancy equipment.
