Occupational Therapist/Lead OT

Team Member Bio

I’m Caitlin Hespe, Lead Occupational Therapist at the Southlake clinic. I joined Monkey Mouths in 2021, as an occupational therapist. I earned my undergraduate degree from Concordia University – Nebraska and my master’s degree in occupational therapy from the College of Saint Mary. Prior to Monkey Mouths, I worked in home health, school, and rural health settings.

As an occupational therapist, my main focus is always on what matters to my clients and their families. I believe that by providing practical solutions to everyday challenges, all children can maximize their ability to engage in ordinary tasks to achieve an extraordinary life.

In my spare time I enjoy playing golf, tennis, swimming, biking, playing guitar, singing, traveling with my family and cooking/baking.
