Physical Therapist Amy Foster has no idea how many children she’s served over her 20+ year career with Rainbows, but she’s definitely provided services and impacted hundreds of children and their families. After earning her master’s degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Kansas, Amy has worked her entire career at Rainbows United. She worked at Ritchie Family Center from 2000-2005 and has been with Sedgwick County Infant/Toddler Services program since 2005.
Amy drives all over south Sedgwick County and serves children and families in their natural environments including child care centers, homes, and with grandparents. She usually has 5-7 appointments each day. “I love supporting families throughout their parenting journey,” said Amy. “I often serve infants and toddlers that have significant challenges and I often serve families from the time their child is released from the hospital until they turn three and transition to their local school district.”
“I never cease to be amazed when I see a child that I’ve been working with begin to take some independent steps. I love being part of supporting children at whatever stage they are in,” she said.
Amy and her husband, Brett have 2 boys, and stay busy cheering them on in football and basketball. Brett teaches Special Education at Andover Middle school, and coaches girls’ basketball. Amy contributes as a writer to support local moms for Wichita Mom, and also contributes blogs for the Rainbows’ The Studio Blog Page.
