Judy Wang OTR/L

Occupational Therapist

After graduating from the University of California, San Diego, with a double degree in Psychology and Human Development, Judy was looking for a career where she can help children with special needs. Drawn to the pediatric population, she soon found herself volunteering in an outpatient pediatric clinic. It was then and there that she fell in love with the way occupational therapists guide, interact, and motivate their patients.

Fueled by this newfound passion, Judy enrolled in the University of Southern California where she obtained a Master of Arts degree in Occupational Therapy in 2014. Judy has experience working with children of all ages, ranging from infants to teenagers. She is passionate about her work as an occupational therapist and strives to provide the best care for all the special kiddos that she interacts with everyday.

Madison Jimenez

Occupational Therapy Aide

Madison joined Team Leaps in late 2017 and was previously a volunteer with us! She grew up around horses and says she now has the coolest job being able to be around them and see how they help heal kiddos. Her favorite horse on the ranch is Rusty. She shared that she has an older brother with down-syndrome that has inspired her to pursue a career where she can help others with special needs. Madison and her brother love to listen to Disney music in the car! She also shared that she has two Boston Terriers that love to cuddle and get in the trash. On her days off she loves going to Disneyland with her niece and riding the Ariel ride. She says that Leaps has taught her that working together is the best way to work and that it is possible to have a job that you love and want to come back to.
