It has been my pleasure to work as an occupational therapist at Mountain Magic Therapy for Kids since 2011. Prior to my position at this clinic, I worked as a therapist for the Mat-Su Borough School District for 27 years. This gave me the opportunity to provide therapy for children aged 3 to 21. Earlier positions as an occupational therapist were in treating children and adults in rehabilitation-in-patient and out-patient settings.
My degree in occupational therapy was earned at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri. I am licensed to practice occupational therapy in the State of Alaska and am registered with the National Board Certification of Occupational Therapy.
Each year, occupational therapists are required to participate in continuing education. My continuing education courses have covered a wide range of topics over the years. Among others, some notable education includes: Neurodevelopmental Training, Sensory Integration/Sensory Processing, Craniosacral Therapy, hand function, Floor-Time interventions, feeding function, postural/movement/coordination skills, and Therapeutic Listening.

Alisa hails from the metropolis of Anchorage, and surprised herself when she fell in love with Palmer and the people of this area soon after college. She spent her high school and college years in Michigan, lived and travelled in Zimbabwe for a year, tried lower 48 living in Oregon but Alaska called to her heart. She opened Mountain Magic Therapy for Kids in 2004 with her friend and physical therapist Tim Landon when they realized that the only way to work in a pediatric clinic out here was to open one. They strived to create a comfortable laid back atmosphere that kids would love, and boy did they ever! Alisa loves doing her best to help kids feel comfortable in their bodies, and feel good with their efforts, across all situations. She uses manual therapies to help kids feel and function better, and playful activities and adaptations to help them be successful. Alisa and her husband Todd have two young boys of their own, and in her free time loves to hike, wild craft, cook yummy healthy foods, and of course, be with her kids.
