April is Occupational Therapy (OT) Month! Today we recognize Heather Holland!
Heather has been a Occupational Therapist for four years. Originally from Winfield, AL, she now resides in Hamilton, AL.
Heather earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Alabama and later attended Alabama State for OT School. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family. Heather also enjoys traveling and running.
Heather’s interests in Occupational Therapy include Orthopedic Rehabilitation with emphasis on Hand Therapy and custom splinting as well as Pediatric Rehabilitation.
When asked why she became an OT Heather replied, “I knew at a young age I wanted to work in healthcare. After shadowing people in various professions, I realized quickly that Occupational Therapy was the perfect fit for me. I chose OT because it’s not a ‘cookie cutter’ career. Occupational Therapy is very diverse with many opportunities for growth. Everyday I get the opportunity to work with people across the lifespan to regain their independence and to live their life to the fullest. I have already found the profession of Occupational Therapy to be rewarding, challenging and filled with countless opportunities to serve others and my community. To quote a close friend, ‘I don’t go to work to make a living but to make a difference.'”
