LaDonna

CEO, OTR/L Occupational Therapist

LaDonna is the President/CEO of Beyond Boundaries OT/PT. She has a knack for leading, mentoring, and empowering employees. LaDonna recognizes that OT is a profession that requires sensitivity, understanding, and compassion, all of which are characteristics that she values tremendously.

LaDonna makes it her mission to be able to reach as many families and children who may need our support.  In order to do just that, LaDonna is able to think outside the box and is very creative in her approach to her mission.  Whether it is being able to expand our services by providing specialized training to our staff, or renovating a bus to offer “therapy on the go”, LaDonna’s heart and mind are open to many innovative ideas.

The relationships that LaDonna builds with employees, patients, families and the community are something that she holds very near to her heart.

Helping children and their families is always LaDonna’s number one priority. She looks forward to watching the kids learn new skills and have success generalizing those skills.  When the children excitedly explain the success they just experienced during a session, that joy just cannot be matched.
