About Us

First Steps Pediatric Therapy formally opened it's doors in August of 2005, although the dreams, ideas and philosophies that guide the practice were present long before in the heart of the owner, Rosemary DeMello. 

After more than 25 years of working in a variety of pediatric settings, including schools, medical facilities, rehabilitation centers, and early intervention, Rosemary decided to fulfill her dream of providing services to children within her own practice. She brings a wealth of experience, enthusiasm and optimism to each child and family's specific needs.
