Audra Butman

Odenton, MD

My name is Audra Butman from Odenton, Maryland. I am a nationally registered and certified occupational therapist who is licensed to practice in the state of Maryland. I support children with special needs and their families in the Maryland Public Schools system. I am also the owner of Sweetheart Doodles, a small family-owned business (mother/daughter team) supporting children with special needs by family-raising puppies with an emphasis on preparing them for future roles in service work, therapy work, emotional support roles, companionship roles, and complex family life. We donate our pups to families in need of canine therapeutic support. I am an explorer, nature lover, nurturer, and dreamer at heart. I have a passion for helping others, caring for animals, painting, and wildlife photography.
