Shari Bolger, OTR, CHT, CLT - Occupational Therapist - Certified Hand Therapist - Certified Lymphedema Therapist:
Shari is an occupational therapist at the Lake Mills Therapy & Sport Center. “I became introduced to Occupational Therapy after sustaining a fall related hand injury during a ballet class. I was referred to OT for treatment ; and became intrigued with the delicate nature of the hand and the level of knowledge and expertise the clinician demonstrated during my treatments. It was with that experience I decided to pursue a career in Occupational Therapy and to specialize in the treatment of hand and upper extremity."
