In today’s episode, I’m joined by Debra Battistella, an occupational therapist and founder of Creative Concepts in Occupational Therapy PLLC. She’s a seasoned therapist with 20 years of experience working in physical and rehab medicine as a COTA and OTR, she also teaches and coordinates fieldwork in an OTA program. In more recent months, Debra has launched an online mirror therapy program to help rehab medicine OTs save time and improve patient outcomes. She’s also now a podcaster, co-hosting a show called The Noggins and Neurons Podcast, as she continues to find creative ways to BE in our profession!
