Brianna Howard graduated from Northern Arizona University in Phoenix, Arizona with her Doctorate of Occupational Therapy in 2021. While in OT school, her clinical rotations and research efforts were centered around providing developmentally appropriate care to children and infants, and advancing the field of neurological rehabilitation. Since graduating, Brianna has worked in acute care pediatrics at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and in inpatient neurological rehabilitation at Barrow Neurological Institute. During undergraduate and graduate school, she worked as a behavioral therapist for 5 years with children with autism, and also as a preschool teacher. She loves working with children because she believes they bring a refreshing, perceptive, and always fun perspective to life. She is passionate about providing holistic, family-centered care to her clients and their families. Brianna just moved to Bend with her husband from Phoenix to escape the heat and embrace the outdoor lifestyle and community of Bend. In her free time, Brianna enjoys exploring the outdoors, traveling, cooking, and spending as much time as possible with family, friends, and her mini Australian shepherd!
