MS OTR/L, CHT
Sara has been practicing as an occupational therapist since 2003 and as a certified hand therapist since 2010 when she became interested in ergonomics while doing work conditioning programming and job site evaluations. Because pain and fatigue do not only happen in work and industry, she became interested in applying ergonomic principles to other areas such as childcare related tasks and maternal health, backpack awareness, and home work stations. Sara is also an Associate Professor at Thomas Jefferson University in the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program.
