"Since 1992 I have always known I wanted to help the injured worker. Every day working as an Occupational Therapist is a blessing and I feel so fortunate to have always worked with injured workers either before they were injured or as a post injury workers' compensation patient. Preventing that injury form ever happening has been very rewarding as an OT and 30 years later I still love the smile on a workers face when we are able provide prevention or ergonomic solutions that help them live a pain free life."

"Working in Industrial Rehab as an Occupational Therapist has been so much fun. In my 20 years as a practitioner not only have I have treated many inspiring injured workers, I have collaborated with so many wonderful case managers, vocational counselors and employers to find the best solution to facilitate successful return to work. It has been so rewarding to be a part of this dynamic area of practice."

"Being an occupational therapist for almost 20 years has been an incredible journey. One that has provided me the opportunity to do what I love most, helping the injured worker get back to work safely. I love working in the industrial rehab setting and providing on-site injury prevention services within a variety of industries. This has been a rewarding experience and has made me appreciate the value that occupational therapists can bring to the industrial settings."

"I love how effective ergonomics is at reducing work injuries and improving productivity of workers. Practicing ergonomics allows me to be constantly problem solving and being creative in identifying and implementing solutions that help people do their occupations safely and effectively. I love that ergonomic change can be seen and measured."

"Over the last 26 years of being an Occupational Therapist, I like working with injured workers, a variety of diagnoses, and helping workers feel better by looking at them as a whole. When working with an injury prevention client I like to observe them working in their work environment which helps to identify ergonomic issues. This helps to facilitate a collaboration with the employer/employee to come up with engineering solutions that resolve the issues and allows a safer work environment."
