Suzy Smith is a licensed Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant who earned her A.A.S from Central Piedmont Community College. With a background as a certified nursing assistant, Suzy has found her passion for occupational therapy. Born and raised in the small town of Rockingham NC, her family moved to the Lake Norman area in 1997, and in 2009 she and her husband settled in Charlotte. Suzy is married with two young sons and enjoys doing anything that involves family and close friends. She also enjoys corny dad jokes, eating unreasonable amounts of sushi, attempting impossible crafts, and playing with the kooky family pets.
Her initial introduction to OT was when her youngest son’s pediatrician exposed her to how specific developmental needs may be met through OT in an approachable and holistic way. This personal experience carries over into her dedication to the field, as well as with each child and their caregivers to achieve as much lasting improvement as possible. More importantly, she wants everyone to be safe and have fun while reaching their goals!
