She’s an active consultant and lecturer with various academic programs and professional groups across the United States and Canada, including: the California Occupational Therapy Association and the Alaskan Occupational Therapy Association. Marjorie has lectured in Toronto, Canada to train parents and professionals in the DIR model; she currently provides tutoring in the DIR model for certificate trainees nationally and internationally.

Marjorie’s mission is to learn as much as possible, spread knowledge as far as possible, and help as many children and families as possible. She thrives on finding new interventions that are cutting edge and is always eager to expand her ever-growing skill set.
When not in the clinic, Marjorie enjoys spending time with her three beautiful children. She is an avid runner and loves to soak up a good audiobook while she takes in the scenery on her trails.
