Why did you choose this career field?
“I love to help people and see them live their lives to the fullest. One of the best parts of my job is watching patients become more functional and active as their limbs return to a more normal looking state. Also, great thought went into the design of the Center, and it almost feels spa-like instead of stuffy and clinical. Finally, I'm very impressed with the extensive training and knowledge all my co-workers have. This is an experienced and dedicated team and the patients return that with their dedication to rehab.”

  Why did you choose this career field?
“I chose occupational therapy as a profession because I was attracted to the idea of helping people of all ages to overcome the effects of disability. I was intrigued with the endless variety of opportunities available to occupational therapists. I have always been fascinated with the finite workings and delicate nature of the lymphatic system and as a certified hand therapist; I am also able to influence edema using complex decongestive therapy methods. The best parts of my job include the collaborative team approach and the techniques used in treatment of lymphedema. The combination of treatments and skilled professional are highly effective in remediating effects of lymphatic system pathology. It is very gratifying for patients to see, in many cases, rapid results. It is very rewarding to see patients returning to their jobs, and regaining their independence in all aspects of their daily lives due to the effects of lymphedema treatment using the methods of complex decongestive treatment (CDT). The Wound & Edema Center in Johnson Creek is truly state-of-the-art. The most up-to-date equipment, expert skill, knowledge and caring nature of the team as well as the convenient location adjacent to the UW Cancer Center makes this clinic a most extraordinary place to receive treatment for wound and lymphedema diagnoses.”
