Let’s get to know more about one of our great OT’s Leanne!
How long have you been with LLA Therapy?
September 2021, so almost one year now!
Why did you become a therapist?
When I was 5 years old, I broke my femur and was in a cast for many weeks. I had to go to physical therapy to relearn how to walk. I even used a walker for awhile in kindergarten! As I got older, I always knew I wanted to help other people. I fell in love with occupational therapy and how versatile it is.

My favorite part of being a therapist is helping clients and their families gain independence and quality of life! I also love doing creative and fun treatments.
Pizza or Tacos?
