Makenzi Swartwood, MS, OTR/L
Makenzi grew up in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of NY. She attended St. John Fisher College in Rochester, NY where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in physics. While earning her degree, she spent most of her free time volunteering at Galisano Children’s Hospital where she discovered occupational therapy and ultimately fell in love with the profession. After working as a teacher’s assistant for a year, she then attended Ithaca College for her Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy. She completed a three month pediatric fieldwork rotation in Charleston during that time and upon graduating, knew she had to return to this beautiful area! She has a passion for working with children of all ages and diagnoses. She is excited to use her skills in pediatrics and to work with families and teachers to provide the best possible care.
In her free time, Makenzi enjoys running, cooking and baking, reading a good book and spending time with her fiancé, family, and friends.
