Welcome to OT FOR TOTS! I am excited that you are interested in our services. My name is STEPHANIE A. MONTERO, OTR and I am the owner and I am a registered occupational therapist with over 20 years of experience! I earned my degree in occupational therapy from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston in 1995. I strive to provide quality services to the children to establish functional independence. Throughout the years, I have worked with special needs children in the local school system, home health care, and early childhood intervention. I have specialized training in sensory processing disorder, developmental delays, and self-help skills (feeding and dressing) handwriting intervention.
Sandra Gutierrez, COTA/L, BS. I'm going on 3 years as a certified occupational therapy assistant. I have 12-years of pediatric experience, 10 years in early childhood intervention and two years of experience in special education in the school districts. I currently work at OT For TOTS part-time and work full-time as an academic clinical director at PIMA Medical Institute.
My name is Jamie Machuca. I graduated from Pima Medical Institute in May of 2015 as an Occupational Therapy Assistant. I have been working at OT For Tots since 2016. Working with the pediatric population is very gratifying to know I am part of the equation to my patients, making improvements in their daily lives. I knew at an early age I wanted to help people, as I was always working and playing with my first cousin, who has Cerebral Palsy; she has always been a big reason for my success. Therefore, I always say it is a beautiful thing when a passion and a career collide!
