Tala Brinderson

I value the development of the whole-child and am passionate about looking for underlying factors that may contribute to difficulties with participation in daily life. Becoming a mother of three boys and being surrounded by new parents increased my love for individualized, family-centered care. Since my eldest son was diagnosed with a learning disability, I have found joy and inspiration in parent advocacy for differential learners. Understanding neurodiversity and mental health has filled me up with so much gratitude and compassion, leading me to continued work on mindset, which determines how we navigate through life’s challenges. 

I have enjoyed building the practice with Amanda from 2018-2023, and currently am taking on more of an advisory role for the company. On my free time, I enjoy being part of a few committees to strengthen special education in the community, going to the beach with my family, cooking, playing tennis, practicing yoga, and traveling.

I love helping children learn about their environment using their senses. Having two children, and a daughter born with a congenital heart defect, I understand the depth of love and tenacity parents hold for their children. My greatest satisfaction comes from watching the clients I work with achieve their goals using a family-centered approach. Seeing a child and their parents smile together is something that never gets old. Together with my family I love to spend time at the river, camping, beach, and exploring nature whenever possible.

Tiffany Tegeler
Operations Director

Tiffany Tegeler

Strengths: Motivated, Compassionate, Quality-Oriented

I went to school to become a teacher and realized quickly that I loved kids but didn’t want to go the education route. Within the last 9 years I was lucky enough to work for an ABA agency with some amazing families within the Inland Empire and also across the United States. As I continue my journey with Infinity Kids, I strive to help the entire family unit by supporting not only our patients but their parents and siblings as well. I am a mother of two boys, so in my free time I am usually hanging out with them by the pool, being a part of their sporting events, and enjoying the sunshine with family and friends.

family care coordinator Director

Linda Finn

Strengths: Loyal, Spontaneous, Even-tempered

I have spent the past 30 years around kids raising our 5 sons here in Orange County.  I enjoyed being involved in all aspects of their lives – even now as they are adults starting their own families and continuing to make us proud.  As I resumed my working career, it only seemed natural that working around children was a perfect fit, and working at Infinity Kids is such a blessing! In my free time I enjoy gardening, crafting, traveling and spending time with family and friends.

Advanced Training: SOS Approach to Feeding, Beckman Oral Motor, CLASI Ayres Sensory Integration, Reflex Integration and Rhythmic Movement

I find joy in helping children and their families work together to increase daily functional living skills through play. My background in infant and pediatric massage allows me to facilitate more natural movements incorporating full body engagement during sessions to improve participation. I use a play- based approach to motivate children in reaching their goals and full potential. In my free time, I love spending time with my family, playing soccer, going to the beach with my dog, and watching movies.

For the past 10 years, I have been working as a pediatric physical therapist in a variety of settings. I have a strong passion for establishing a program to support each child meet their developmental milestones to the best of their ability. Working with parents to help their child succeed is the greatest joy of my job. In my free time I enjoy watching my two children grow and explore each day. We like to stay active as a family, enjoy being outside and going to sporting events.

Family Care Coordinator

Madeline Lindley

Strengths: Responsible, Determined, Enthusiastic

I currently attend Cal State Dominguez Hills as a Public Health Major, and aim to earn my Master’s in Occupation Therapy. I’ve worked in hospitals as a nursing assistant for 3 years, and am interested in learning about healthcare from a therapeutic and holistic approach. Working at Infinity Kids has helped develop skills that I look forward to implementing in my future career as an OT. On my free time I enjoy reading, running, and baking.

Billing Specialist

Stephanie Baires

Strengths: Personable, Uplifting, Joyful

My journey in billing began in 2014 at a durable medical equipment company, where I navigated patients through the authorization process. While I did not directly bill at that time, it was often required that I look into the billing aspect to help patients understand the process. I eventually went on to become a work comp biller for 3 years. I not only enjoy how healthcare/insurance works, but also love being able to support and guide patient’s during an uncertain time in their lives. Working for Infinity Kids feels natural and I get to meet amazing children and their wonderful families. In my free time I enjoy getting cozy with a good book, arts and crafts, playing video games, taking walks, and spending time with my loved ones and my little yorkie.
