We first met Clover at the annual NYSOTA conference. Her exuberance and passion is infectious. We instantly knew she was some one we really wanted on our team! We were lucky enough to snag Clover for PunkinFutz’s Volunteer Advisory Group. We are grateful for her support and fortunate to be able to feature her as our OT SpOTlight for July.
