Nicole Barmen, more affectionately known by her students as Ms. B. is an occupational therapist with 18 years experience in a school-based pediatric setting. She came from a small town in upstate NY and didn’t even know what occupational therapy was in high school. Nicole entered college with interests in careers at opposite ends of the spectrum: Advertising and OT. After a month into the course, Intro to Occupational Therapy, she was hooked and never looked back. Nicole is a graduate of Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. Nicole has worked in inner city, suburban, and rural school districts. Through contract agencies, she has also worked in a variety of settings, including nursing homes, Day Habs, Home Health, Article 28 sites, preschool, and Early Intervention. She is currently working in a large Suburban school district in both the public and private school setting, as well as working with preschoolers after school. Nicole has two daughters that keep her hopping and enjoys the outdoors and has been attempting to learn to knit in her very limited down time. She hopes to someday write children's books incorporating therapy and children with developmental needs.
