About 

Live Oak Kids is located in the East Bay, CA and offers community based OT services as well as outdoor developmental nature playgroups. 

 

At Live Oak Kids, our mission is to provide accessible programming that brings kids "back to nature" and fosters Growth, Connection, Engagement and Joy !

 

We value the foundational skills that are so important for overall development and children's mental health. These areas include outdoor/nature play, moving to learn (and learning to move), sensory integration and functional oculomotor/vision skills (to inform reading, handwriting, attention, self-regulation and social skills).

Maggie started Live Oak Kids in an effort to provide accessible and engaging programming for children of all abilities. She grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, playing in the woods and climbing on the haystacks of her dad's little red barn. After completing her undergraduate degree in Dance and Kinesiology,  Maggie moved to California and completed her Master's Degree in Occupational Therapy at Samuel Merritt University.  

 

Maggie's 15+ years of experience as a pediatric occupational therapist has allowed her to practice in a variety of settings including in-patient rehabilitation, pediatric out patient clinics, early intervention home-based services, school-based practice, and nature based settings. She has completed extensive post graduate training and specializes in early intervention services as well as sensory integration and oculomotor/vision rehabilitation interventions for children.
