Theresa (Tree) Palmer, MS, OTRL, Therapy Director



Theresa received her BS from Northern Michigan University in 2009 and participated in AmeriCorps before returning to school at Grand Valley for her MS in occupational therapy. After grad school, Theresa ventured out to Hawaii where she lived and worked as a pediatric therapist in the school system for 3 years. She began at Bay Cliff in 2009 as a counselor and has held many positions on camp since then as: an assistant unit leader, unit leader, teen coordinator and assistant program director, occupational therapist and lead occupational therapist. Theresa has always looked for ways to return to Bay Cliff each summer, so she was excited when the opportunity arose to ‘return’ permanently as the director of therapy!'
