Sarah Appleman MS OTR/L
I am a pediatric occupational therapist currently residing in San Diego California. I have always had two passions in life: children and animals. Early in my career, I decided to combine both of these loves and open a pediatric animal-assisted therapy clinic in Long Beach, New York. It was through this clinic that I fully developed an understanding of the wonderful effect animals can have on children and came up with the concept for Paw Prints while teaching handwriting skills to children with disabilities.
