Lynnze is an occupational therapist who grew up in Mt. Juliet, TN. She received both her undergraduate degree and Occupational Therapy Doctorate from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where she now calls home. Her three biggest passions are animals, art, and people with disabilities. Her dream to combine these passions led her to practice occupational therapy in the hippotherapy and animal assisted therapy settings, alongside the clinic setting. In her free time she enjoys playing with her four rescue dogs, painting, watching sports, hiking, and spending time near any bodies of water. Lynnze loves working with the pediatric population because it allows her to combine her silly, loving, creative, and encouraging personality with play-based therapy, to ultimately improve each patient’s occupational performance. Mrs. Lynnze’s wonderful imagination and ability to think outside the box helps her to create and provide each of her children with a customized therapeutic experience tailored to their needs.
