Hi' I am Adasiah “Daisy” Carlson
I graduated from Gannon University and am from NY. I chose OT because I want to be able to help individuals live a meaningful life and to be part of that process. On my weekends when I’m not at work playing with the kiddos, I am usually trying a new restaurant, going to famers markets, going on coffee dates with my husband, bingeing Netflix, baking, or playing with my dog. Also, my favorite season is Fall!

What is the essence of what you do?
Making kiddos smile and enjoy life while improving their development to live an independent life.
I enjoy trying new restaurants, iced coffee, road trips, and spending time with friends, family, and my dog.

What I Like Most About Working with Patients
I love that I am able to help kids in various ways along with creating bonds with their families. I like that I am able to be creative for each kiddo and leave a lasting positive impact. When the kiddos arrive at therapy and have a big smile when they see me, it just makes my day!
What Patients Like Most About Me and My Organization
I think the patients at SMART like that I am very playful, play music, and enjoy doing crafts with them. I think the parents like that I am very involved in each session and actively listen to their concerns along with providing educational handouts and strategies for certain situations. I also think the parents like that SMART is focused on sensory integration techniques and that the needs are met for each patient.
