Meet Chris Callahan, Pediatric OT at Liberty Station
Chris became a pediatric OT after having spent much of his adult career in art production. He noticed a connection of how the two fields blended both art and science and found a new calling in life. Chris stresses parent education and considers his biggest successes stem from effective parent understanding and treatment plan implementation.
