Ann Troshinsky, OTR/L
Ann grew up in Omaha, Nebraska where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Therapeutic Recreation. When she moved to Maryland, she gained valuable experience while working with youth in a mental health facility, and at that point decided she wanted to make a career change and earned her Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy from Towson University.
Her family faced unique challenges once here twins were born and had to navigate much of it without robust services on the Eastern Shore. She's been working with children and the pediatric population for more than 15 years, and incorporates everything she has learned from being both an OT and a mother. She loves being an OT and working with children with special needs. Ann has focused on specific trainings and coursework in the areas of Sensory Processing/Integration and Behavioral Problem Solving. She loves to emphasize play-based and joyful interventions. It is important to her to support parent involvement in therapy to raise their confidence and lower their stress levels.
Ann is a member of the American Occupational Therapy Association and is Board Certified. She and her husband made the Eastern Shore their home since 1999. They live with their boy/girl twins (now teen-agers) and their many pets. She likes to play cards, basketball, crochet, embroider, and read research for work (she believes in life-long learning!).
