My name is Liz Franken, and I am a pediatric occupational therapist for Theratime Inc. I serve children and families through early intervention, school-based and outpatient occupational therapy. I grew up in Lincoln, NE, earned a BA in Biology from Augustana College and served as an assistant director of NeSoDak for Lutherans Outdoors in South Dakota before moving to Burbank, SD to earn my MS in occupational therapy from University of South Dakota. My husband, AJ, and I then moved to Pierre where I worked as an OT for the Pierre School District. In 2018, we moved back to Vermillion with our two daughters, Vera and Etta, who attend Vermillion Public Schools. Currently, I enjoy volunteering at Austin Elementary and look forward to working with the Vermillion Public Schools Foundation Board to provide support and opportunities for all students.
