Mary Lintz, OT

Brighton School District/University of Northern Colorado
A Colorado native, Mary received her Master’s in OT from Pacific University’s school of OT in Oregon and has since worked in clinic, home health, hospital, and school settings.  A frequency of news reports of sexual abuse of people with disabilities of all ages and in all settings led her to return to school in 2013.  She is currently embarking on her dissertation on the topic of staff-to-student sexual misconduct in special education and views OT’s role of promoting self-help independence as not only helpful and desirable, but as imperative and unique among professions.  If we ever question our value, know that WE play a primary role in decreasing a person’s lifelong vulnerability to sexual abuse through our unique focus on promoting and facilitating self-help independence.
