Hi everyone! My name is Holly Huggins. I hail from the University of Georgia--Go Dawgs! My hometown is a quiet little town called Fitzgerald, GA. During my time in school I worked with a number of populations, but I have most enjoyed the energy and joy that comes with working with children! My time at Therabeat, Inc. is the final stretch to my board certification and official graduation!
The past couple of weeks have been an amazing whirlwind to say the least. I have been observing and introducing myself to all the talented staff at In Harmony Pediatric Therapy. I have had the privilege of meeting the patients and their families and caretakers. I am beyond blessed to be a part of their lives for even this short amount of time. I am so excited to see all of the growth and milestones that each unique patient will reach.
During the winter recital, I had the pleasure of watching so many of these patients showcase songs and dances that they have been working on since September. In some of these performances I had the best seat in the house, the stage beside them. Seeing the joy radiate from them and transferring to the audience is something I will never forget. Hearing one of my kiddos exclaim “that was so great!” after his dancing and singing act, watching the two members of Rock Bottom clap for themselves after another successful gig, and many more little moments wrapped up to the fact that I got to be a part of that moment with them. It’s a privilege that I do not take lightly. All of that being said, the experiences I have had during my time here have proven to be once-in-a-lifetime learning opportunities. I understand in greater depth the importance of addressing the sensory needs of a child, I find myself surprised by the talent and ability of the patients I see, and continue to learn to never underestimate any of them.
I look forward to cherishing every moment that I have in this clinic. In this time of reflecting on what we are thankful for, Therabeat Inc. and In Harmony Pediatrics are both at the very top of my list.
