Judi graduated from Wayne State University.  She is the clinical director of Sensory Systems Clinic and has been with the facility for 10 years.  Judi has previously worked in small hospitals, nursing homes, the Intermediate School Districts, home health care, Macomb County Community Mental Health and was also a private practitioner/contractor.  Judith had an article published in the International Rhett's Syndrome Association Newsletter regarding what to look for in a sensory integration evaluation, especially when complex issues are involved.  She is a member of AOTA, MiOTR, DDR and MASPOT.  When asked why she was working at Sensory Systems she stated that she liked, "The direct hands on, one on one approach with an environment rich with equipment that allows the therapist a maximal situation to have major impact.  Continuing education is well supported by Sensory Systems Clinic, plus we have other well trained therapists as peers that provide a wealth of knowledge/experience.  We work cooperatively not competitively."
