DANIELLE WALSH MS, OTR/L
Danielle Walsh received her Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Science in May of 2015 and her Master of Science degree in Occupational Therapy in October of 2016 from Ithaca College. She was first introduced to the Project CHILLD family as a graduate student in the summer of 2016, when she completed a Level II Fieldwork pediatric specialty placement.
Early in her professional career, Danielle gained meaningful experience in pediatric mental health at Saint Mary’s Center for Women and Children in Boston. There she developed and managed a pediatric occupational therapy program for the Bridge Home, a residential program for children with experiences of trauma and neglect. In August of 2017, Danielle returned to Project CHILLD as an occupational therapist and continued to pursue education in trauma-informed care. She also completed a Therapeutic Crisis Intervention training course through Cornell University’s Family Life Development Center.
Danielle's passion for serving children and families led her to pursue a Nurse Practitioner degree specializing in pediatric mental health. She currently attends Massachusetts General Hospital's Insitute for Health Professionals (IHP) and continues to serve Project CHILLD clients as an occupational therapist on a part-time basis.
