Jamie T. Williams
Tiffany M. Hursh
Jamie was raised in Church Point, Louisiana, a small town in the heart of Cajun Country. She graduated from LSU and went on to teach adapted physical education in the public school system for 5 years. Yearning to learn more about *why* her students were struggling in school and with learning new movements, Jamie left South Louisiana and moved to Florida to go to school to become an occupational therapist. In 2015, she graduated from Nova Southeastern University with a Doctorate in Occupational Therapy. Wanting to deepen her experience in working with pediatrics, Jamie had the pleasure of working with the most esteemed pediatric therapists in Atlanta. In 2019, Jamie and her family decided to move to the beautiful Smoky Mountains, hoping to have more opportunities to connect with nature. Smoky Mountain Occupational Therapy was opened in the Summer of 2020 in an effort to bring family-oriented, strengths-based, quality OT services to the children in the area. Smoky Mountain OT has become the area's go-to for sensory processing, and we are so proud to call Maryville home!
