Serena Dewey, OTR/L
Serena was born and raised in western Washington and has lived throughout the northwest. She completed her bachelor's degree at Walla Walla University in Speech Communication and then completed her master’s degree in Occupational Therapy at Eastern Washington University.
While at Eastern Washington University, Serena participated in community-based volunteer opportunities including the organization of a Halloween costume design and trick-or-treating event for children with mobility limitations. Serena also enjoyed partnering with children and their families during a constraint-induced movement therapy camp offered at Eastern Washington University. She has experience working in a variety of settings including inpatient rehabilitation, mental health, pediatrics, early intervention pediatrics, and telehealth.
As a mom to two young children, Serena understands the challenges that come with parenting and is passionate about partnering with families and caregivers to facilitate a child's success in their play and everyday routines. Serena believes in the value of engaging family members (and especially siblings) in play-based therapy to promote a child's development of fine motor, visual motor, cognitive and communication skills.
Outside of work, Serena enjoys swimming, spending time outdoors, camping, playing with her young girls, and caring for the family pets.
