Deb D'Amico Schmitz is a licensed occupational therapist from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Occupational therapy is her second career. She was a lab technician at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in the Department of Biological Sciences for 20 years before obtaining her Master of Occupational Therapy degree from Concordia University-Wisconsin in 2001. Deb feels that her biology background has been a great asset to her as an OT as she can better help families understand their children's medical issues. Deb is a credentialed provider and evaluator in Early Intervention and continues to work as a private provider. She joined Therapeutic Links in October 2011 and is thrilled to be working with this great group of therapists and families! She really enjoys the challenges of working with older children and looks forward to continuing to learn from them. Deb's specialities include MNRI (Masgutova Neuro-sensory-motor Reflex Integration), Therapeutic Listening, Yoga for the Special Child, CranioSacral Therapy, DIR Floortime and Sensory Integration. Deb continues to reside in Milwaukee although she threatens to move to Illinois at any time.
