Hello! My name is Daniele and I am the founder of Boise Outdoor OT and Mud Kitchen Kids & Loose Parts Play enrichment. I graduated magna cum laude with a Master of Occupational Science degree and have experience working with the New York Department of Education - the largest and most diverse school system in the US.  I also worked as an Everwild Forest School Educator here in Boise and continue to serve on their advisory committee. 

After years of working in traditional settings, I was astounded by the enormous therapeutic benefits I witnessed working with children outside. I knew it was time to get out of the clinic and into the great outdoors.


As a mother of two, I know parents are facing magnified challenges meeting all of their child's needs. I would be honored to be a part of your support circle and share my therapeutic outdoor approach. My goal is to developmentally support your child while co-facilitating with nature. Your child is their own agent of change.
