Goodwin Therapy Owner

She began her career serving clients in the home health setting before founding Little Red Wagon Pediatric Therapy in 2016.

With the name change, the practice also expanded its treatment services to include myofunctional therapy, and to treat young adults needing additional support as they transition to college and/or the workforce.

When she’s not working to help our families reach their goals, you’ll find her chasing after her soon-to-be three-year-old and five-year-old around town, expanding her cooking skills (aspiring to be like her mom who is an amazing cook) or at home enjoying a nice cup of coffee.
