Occupational Therapy Month: Spotlight

April is Occupational Therapy Month. We would like to highlight some of our talented teammates. Meet Amber Wright, OT.

Let’s meet Amber! She is an Occupational Therapist practicing 14 years and sharing her skills at Epworth Villa for the past 10. Amber says it may sound cliché but “I love helping patients get better and regain confidence in themselves.” As a student in her last rotation, Amber worked at a Skilled Nursing Facility and fell in love with this population. She shares, “this group of people has lived so much of life, and I learn something new all the time.”

A favorite success story of Amber’s is a patient who came to her with a devastating stroke. They worked hard together to help her succeed in her recovery and she was able to go home independently! Receiving a visit from her several months later, with a huge smile on her face, makes being a therapist so rewarding.
