My OT journey has been very interesting, giving me opportunities to work with all age groups in different clinical settings - inpatient hospital setting, outpatient clinics, neuro-rehab and orthopedic rehab. 

 

While working at Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, I appreciated the complex anatomy and functioning of the brain and learned about the multiple challenges faced by stroke patients and their families. To enhance my understanding of neuro rehab and to be better equipped to help my stroke patients, I completed NDT (Neurodevelopmental Techniques) Certification in 2006. 

In 2008, I explored the occupational therapy specialization of the hand and upper extremity. Studying and understanding the intricacies and complexities of hand intrigued me. My passion for treating hand injuries lured me to delve deeper into the marvel of hand.


After three years of studying, taking courses and exams; and exclusively treating a variety of hand and upper extremity disorders and injuries, I became a Certified hand therapist in 2011. My favorite skills are patient education, fabricating new creative splints/orthosis and carrying out individual treatment plans.
