Ben Feldman, OTR/L

I am an occupational therapist because I want to help children thrive. I received my Master's of Occupational Therapy from Eastern Washington University in 2023. Prior to becoming an OT, I worked as a Montessori teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area and an English teacher in the Basque Country of Spain. My desire to become a pediatric therapist began with wanting to better serve children with unique needs in my classroom. I have completed fieldwork in inpatient rehabilitation, outpatient pediatrics, outpatient neurology, juvenile forensic occupational therapy and school-based occupational therapy. I am registered with the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy. When not at work, I enjoy being in wilderness and/or playing country music, bluegrass, old time and traditional dance music.  I love working as a pediatric OT because every child is unique, and every day is a learning experience.
