In celebration of Occupational Therapy Month in April, we are highlighting some of our longest tenured therapistsâ€¦

Why did you choose the field of occupational therapy?
I choose the field of occupational therapy because of it’s holistic nature. It treats the whole person and addresses the importance of people’s psychological and emotional well being as well as physical needs. It enables people of all ages and abilities to engage in the activities and occupations that are meaningful to their lives.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is work directly with clients and seeing their face light up when they have accomplished a goal or activity that they have worked so hard to achieve and returning home.
Favorite part of working at Therapy Center?
My favorite part of working for the Therapy Center are my co-workers. They make me laugh even on the most stressful days.
