Ms. Brown has been practicing as an occupational therapist since 2008 after earning her master’s degree in occupational therapy from the University of Central Arkansas.  She joined the University of Central Arkansas OT Department as an adjunct faculty member in the fall of 2013.  Her primary focus as a practitioner has been with pediatrics and young adults in school-based and community settings.  Ms. Brown co-directs Acting Creates Therapeutic Success (ACTS) in Little Rock, a community-based program that provides adults with developmental/intellectual disabilities the opportunity to participate in the performing arts.  She also co-directs an annual week-long performing arts summer camp for adults with disabilities through the ARC Arkansas.

Ms. Brown is currently conducting research regarding the effectiveness of an occupation-based performing arts program among adults with developmental/intellectual disabilities utilizing the Theory of Occupational Adaptation.  She was recently accepted to co-present on this topic at the American Occupational Therapy Association’s 2014 Annual Conference & Expo.

Ms. Brown is a member of the American Occupational Therapy Association.  She is also an auxiliary member for the Arkansas Enterprise for the Developmentally Disabled, which serves adults and children with disabilities in the Central Arkansas area.
