Mackenzie Danielson, MOT, OTR/L
Mackenzie is an Occupational Therapist with Quotable Kids Pediatric Therapy Clinic. She earned a Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy at the University of North Dakota in May 2020. As a student, Mackenzie took particular interest in pediatrics, while gaining experience through extensive fieldwork opportunities in outpatient and school settings. Besides pediatrics, she also got experience in many other settings, such as inpatient psych, outpatient psych, nursing home, and inpatient physical disabilities hospital settings. For her scholarly project prior to graduation, she did extensive research on infant sleep, creating the scholarly project titled A Holistic Approach to Infant Sleep, which includes a screening tool and educational manual.
Mackenzie chose to become a pediatric occupational therapist after observing how fun and rewarding it can be to help families and children make progress on their goals through the use of meaningful play and occupation. She takes a client-centered, family-oriented, and occupation-focused approach to therapy sessions and loves to use her creativity in unique ways with each child. Areas of special interest to Mackenzie include sensory processing, self-regulation, and reflex integration. Mackenzie is excited to continue to grow as a therapist by searching out continuing education in all areas of pediatric occupational therapy in order to best serve the children and families at Quotable Kids. Mackenzie is originally from Grand Forks County and is excited to serve the community that she loves!
In her free time, Mackenzie enjoys spending time with her husband and family, including activities such as hammocking, frolfing, yoga, and walks on the Greenway. She especially values the time she gets with her precious niece. Mackenzie is a TV, book, movie, and media buff and loves connecting with others through them. She is always excited to meet new people and is happy to be a part of the Quotable Kids therapy team.
