Employee Spotlight: Katie Bevins, OTR/L

We would like to extend a warm welcome to Katie, who recently joined our therapy team in our Valencia location as our newest occupational therapist. Prior to joining McRory Pediatric Services, Katie gained experience working with children with a variety of disorders, including Down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorder, and Prader Willi syndrome to name a few.

Katie chose a career in pediatrics as she values the ability to collaborate with families when working with their children. Katie also enjoys the energy level of children and loves to see their sense of pride in their accomplishments.

She chose to join the team of McRory Pediatric because of the the ability to collaborate with other disciplines and tap into the expertise of others.

In her downtime, Katie enjoys cooking. She loves trying new foods, particularly international foods. She likes to try new dishes and then try to recreate them at home. She also enjoys watching home improvement shows. She loves going on hikes with her two dogs, Mavro, a pug, and Kermit, a greyhound.

Welcome Katie
