Hi there! My name is Jacque Underhill and I’m a graduate of the University of South Alabama where I completed my Bachelor of Science in Therapeutic Recreation and Master of Science in Occupational Therapy. I love living in the Columbia River Gorge and truly believe this is the most beautiful place in the world. Growing up as a fourth generation farmer’s daughter, I have so many fond memories playing outdoors, riding horses, and working alongside my family, which are still among some of my favorite things. On other days, I enjoy staying inside to scrapbook, paint, and watch romantic movies (on repeat).
I have a true passion for empowering children to understand the fullness with which they are loved, the beauty with which they were created, and the uniqueness of their skills and talents. I have always believed that there is no such thing as a “bad kid” and I still couldn’t be more convinced in that truth. My areas of special interest include: building/strengthening parent and child relationships; promoting healing from traumatic pasts; giving kids the tools they need to overcome daily challenges; and addressing developmental issues related to non integration of early reflexes using the MNRI method.
I’m thrilled to be a part of the Kidsense team and I look forward to working with you and your family!
