Jamie Baker, originally from New Jersey, has lived in Boston, MA for three years and is currently a third-year in the MGH Institute of Health Professions Doctor of Occupational Therapy Program. Jamie has spent this past year working in numerous occupational therapy settings including home visits and outpatient pediatrics. Jamie’s final doctoral project this semester is focused on effective home modification strategies to optimize the use of the home as part of the healthcare continuum across the lifespan. Specifically, her hope is to add to the limited research regarding accessibility for children with disabilities. Jamie is looking forward to enhancing the experience of individuals of all abilities through the use of inclusive design. Some of Jamie’s favorite things include traveling to new places, listening to live music, and eating all of the Italian food possible!
