Lindsey Schwartz-Clinic Assistant @ White Bear Lake
I started with Advance August 2018, and love being a part of the Advance Therapy family! I attended the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities for undergrad and earned a bachelor's in Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences, with a minor in neuroscience. I want to be an occupational therapist someday because I love working with people and helping them reach their goals, as well as finding opportunities for people to reach their fullest independence. In my free time I love cooking, going to the gym and lifting weights, and playing with dogs. I love anything that sparkles or has glitter, and am always looking to laugh and help brighten someone's day.

Anna Lee- Clinic Aide @ Lino Lakes
My name is Anna Lee and I am a senior at South Campus Area High School in White Bear Lake. I have been at Advance Therapy since June 2018. The best parts of my job are seeing the kiddos smiling and having fun, and working alongside the amazing therapists! In my free time, I love to bake, read, play clarinet and piano, and spend time with my puppy-Poppy!
In addition to the wonderful therapists, Advance Therapy has an amazing support team.
at Advance Therapy WE ARE UNITED IN our BELIEF THAT ALL CHILDREN:
Have the power to learn!
Are curious & creative!
No two children have exactly the same skills or learning style. That’s why we collaborate with parents to create an individual plan of care for every child.
We also believe that every family is unique, so our staff works hard to take a "big picture" approach to consider all ways we can support parents and their children.
