Team Member Bio

I’m Tricia Jenson and I joined Monkey Mouths in 2017. I am Director of Occupational Therapy Services and a National Board Certified Occupational Therapist. I graduated from Texas Woman’s University and prior to Monkey Mouths I worked as a pediatric Occupational Therapist in a home health setting for 19 years.  My years of experience working with children of all ages and diagnoses have made me a well-rounded therapist with an extensive knowledge base.
