Tracey Shell, MS, OTR/L has been an occupational therapist (OT) on the ACCESS Early Childhood team for about ten years. She is an OT first and an animal lover second. She currently is the caregiver for various farm animals, including goats, mules, miniature donkeys, a pony, dogs, llamas and cows. She is excited to share her love of animals with the children she serves by bringing them to the school for special occasions to allow for a multisensory experience many of them may not get the chance to experience otherwise. She hopes to someday share her love of animals and working with children through a hippotherapy program where her passions can truly be combined!
Tracey’s favorite part of working for ACCESS is getting to see each of her clients develop into a person who is enjoying life to the fullest by reaching their highest potential. When she is not working, Tracey enjoys spending time with her family, riding her mule, hiking with or without llamas, camping, and of course, taking care of all her critters.
