Jackie Arnold, MS, OTR/L
Jackie Arnold first attended the University of Georgia where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Psychology/Minoring in Human Development and Family Science. She went on to pursue her Masters of Health Science in Occupational Therapy at the Augusta University in Georgia.
From the beginning Ms. Jackie knew she wanted to help children and their families. She says, “I enjoy helping children because I get to see the world through their eyes. It is amazing to watch a child experience something for the first time, or watch the “lightbulb” go off when they have achieved a task that used to be a a challenge for them.”
Ms. Jackie enjoys working with all ages of children and uses her specialized training in the Astronaut Program, Interactive Metronome, and integration of primitive reflexes to support each child’s progress.
Ms. Jackie says that her goal when helping to maximize each child’s potential is to work with both the child and their caregiver when setting goals. She feels that the greatest impact is made when interventions prioritize the family’s needs. Ms. Jackie is outgoing and creative with her intervention approaches which motivates the children to do their best!
In her spare time, Ms. Jackie enjoys spending time with friends and family. She enjoys settling in with a good book and occasionally binging the latest TV series.
