Sentence Ambiguity

In the conclusion of Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski, I read this:

Everyone does it, from the toddler who falls down while she's learning to walk to the gifted mediator feeling her way through recovery from a sexual assault.
My first reaction was, "Why is the toddler learning to walk to the gifted mediator?" That's a sentence that maybe could have used one more comma.
