Sacred Heart University – BS in Psychology
Zack graduated from Sacred Heart University in 2015 with a bachelors degree in psychology before continuing on to complete his Masters in Occupational Therapy in 2018. During his graduate studies he completed his clinical internship at Butler Hospital working with adolescents in an inpatient mental health setting. After graduation Zack enrolled in the Occupational Therapy Mental Health Fellowship at the University of North Carolina (UNC) Medical Center. During this program he received extensive mentorship, provided care across all inpatient psychiatric units, and engaged in scholarly research.
In 2019 Zack transitioned from the fellowship to a full time position at UNC where he has spent the last two years working primarily with adults and young adults who have Severe Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI). As an OT, Zack is passionate about how one’s daily activities and experiences influence their well-being. He enjoys helping others overcome challenges so they can participate, be present, and find meaning in their life.
Zack moved to the Upper Valley with his significant other, dog, and cat. He is a former athlete who enjoys outdoor adventures, reading, writing, and listening to podcasts. Originally from Massachusetts, he is excited to return “home” to New England and join Mountain Valley in the summer of 2021.”
