OT Spotlight: Angie

April is National Occupational Therapy Month and it’s also the time when Therapy Center celebrates our very own team of occupational therapists.  Occupational therapists are vital in every therapeutic setting because they “have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment and/or task to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team. It is an evidence-based practice deeply rooted in science.” (AOTA.org)

Angie is the occupational therapist on our teams at Whispering Pines Community Care Center in Plain Dealing as well as Carrington Place Nursing Home in Springhill.  She commutes between the two nursing homes and is known for her positive attitude with patients as well as fellow therapists.

“She has such a sweet personality and has a great relationship with all co-workers and patients.  She has stepped up to any challenge thrown her way.  She is our YES girl!” – Summer, certified occupational therapy assistant at Whispering Pines.

Angie recently became involved in the Louisiana Occupational Therapy Association, LOTA, and is the Northwest District Chair.  She is enthusiastic and eager to further her OT knowledge by actively participating in promoting the career that she loves.  Thank you Angie for your dedication!
