Speaker Biographies
Jennifer Brady-Johnson, OTD/S, MAOT, OTR/L  
I currently work in a federal setting IV school with students that have high emotional and behavioral needs. As a school-based therapist I have spent a career understanding the importance of linking sensory processing to self-regulation, but with setting IV students, building mental health capacity for self-regulation may be more foundation. Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) offers the opportunity to build mental health capacity in our students.

Amy Carrier, OTR/L, M.S. Ed, OTDS
Amy has been an occupational therapist for nearly thirty years.  She has worked in a variety of settings but has spent most of her career in school practice.  She is currently working in academia as an occupational therapy instructor.  She will be graduating with an OTD from St. Catherine University in May.
