Meg graduated from Iowa State University with honors, receiving a degree in Linguistics. Her experience in this field of study provided her with in depth understanding of all components of language. Upon graduation, she decided she wanted to use this knowledge to help others. Inspired by her father’s diagnosis of ALS and seeing the impact his SLP made in this process, she pursued a second bachelors in Communicative Sciences and Disorders at Utah State University and completed her education by receiving her masters at Abilene Christian University.
She was able to experience several settings during her fieldwork, including skilled nursing facilities, school systems, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, and both adult and pediatric home health, but pediatrics quickly stole her heart.

Sarayah K, OTR- Northwest
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2009. I earned my Master of Science in Occupational Therapy from Touro University Nevada in 2017. I currently work two settings, pediatric outpatient and adult acute care. During school I had a unique opportunity present itself. A family friend gave birth to triplets who were born at 32 weeks. This allowed me to see the progression of therapy services beginning in the NICU and transitioning to early intervention services. Early intervention services cease at age three, where families will seek outpatient services. Being able to see the continuity of care has given me insight of how optimize treatment planning to improve outcomes. A fun fact about myself is that I am a huge foodie and was in the restaurant industry for 13 years before I became a therapist.
