Meet Mrs. Fackelman



    I am one of the three Occupational Therapists who work for Gates Chili. This year my caseload allows me to work with students at Neil Armstrong.

    I earned my B.S. in Occupational Therapy from Keuka College in 1997. Right after graduation, I worked full time in the adult day program at UCPA for 2 years. I then worked for BOCES II for 4 years where I had the opportunity to work with children with various disabilities. I also had the pleasure of working at Pediatric Therapy Services as a per diem therapist for 4 years as well. I have been at Gates Chili since September 2003.  I also work for LEAP for Kids on a per diem basis working with children in both the Early Intervention and Preschool programs.     

    On a personal note, I am married and have two children who keep me very busy! Gordy is 6 and McKenzie is 4.  When I am not working, I enjoy playing with my kids, watching movies, playing golf, and spending time with my family and friends.
