Meet Your Occupational Therapists!
Tracy Murry, OT/L – Owner/Founder
Tracy Murray was first introduced to Sensory Integration principles over 35 years ago in a semester of college while working on her occupational therapy degree at Elizabethtown College. With a newfound interest, she worked alongside her professor and became certified in the Sensory Integration and Praxis Test (SIPT) designed by Dr. A. Jean Ayres, PhD, OTR. Tracy became a research assistant at this time, collecting data from field studies to support the SIPT. She took a 25+ year break from her professional OT work to raise and home-school her eight children while also founding a ministry in Zambia, Africa, where she lived for four and a half years.
Upon her return to the US, Tracy became aware of a dramatic rise in individuals struggling with sensory processing disorders. While working as a First Steps OT, she designed Think Move Learn to help individuals, families, friends, and caregivers easily carry out activities that encourage thinking, moving and learning with increased skills and abilities in an environment where the most effective learning can take place.
In her off time, Tracy enjoys running her ongoing ministry, RecycloCraftz, in Zambia as well as kayaking, hiking, sewing, and breeding golden retrievers stateside.
