OTA Corner



Greetings from the OTA Representative at Large 


Welcome to the OTA Corner! As your OTA Representative, I serve on the Board of Directors to represent the interests of OTA members. Working collaboratively with the other board members, I advocate for occupational therapy practitioners who are licensed in Pennsylvania. My goal for this term is to encourage the growth of our OTA members by facilitating inclusion within our association. There were so many wonderful ideas generated at the annual conference this year that members are hoping to implement soon. To stay up to date on specifics I invite you to join the OTAs Connect group on the social link (there is a dark blue tab at the very top of this page). This is an open forum where I will do most of my communication with members. I welcome your involvement with our efforts, please contact me for all of your OTA related needs, I am happy to help in any way I can.
