Jessie Simkins, OTR/L


Jessie is thrilled to return to Amy Zier + Associates as an Occupational Therapist after spending three months learning from this group of talented therapists last summer! After graduating from the Master of Occupational Therapy program at Elmhurst College, she spent time backpacking through Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Australia before rejoining the AZ+A team.

Last year Jessie enjoyed leading groups at AZ+A camp, having a role in a school-based handwriting group, visiting classrooms, and playing with all of the wonderful kids that come to the playhouse. In her free time, you can find her swimming, biking, and running along the lake in preparation for a half-Ironman race in June. She also is fundraising to run the Chicago Marathon through “The Sports Shed,” an organization that provides access to sports for Chicago kids in need. Jessie is extremely excited to continue to grow as an Occupational Therapist with the hardworking, passionate, and dedicated group at AZ+A!
