Matt Aubrey, Therapist Aide and All Around Help Matt graduated from Salem State University in May of 2016 with a degree in exercise science. He hopes to return to school in a year to earn his COTA/L and then go on to earn his OTR/L sometime in the future. He has previously worked in a hockey and lacrosse store and has a vast amount of knowledge on both. Matt feels he was lucky enough to get an internship here at Peer Projects Therapy From The Heart as it helped him discover that he wanted to pursue a career in pediatric occupational therapy. However, observing how well all the kids responded to Matt, Mary Lou and Linda knew they were the lucky ones, and offered him a job as a therapist aide before his internship was even finished! You can find him helping out in sessions and making sure everything is neat and organized. In his free time he enjoys watching and playing sports and also playing with his puppy Zeke.
