Massachusetts Association for Occupational Therapy
Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants in the state of Massachusetts work in a variety of settings serving a population as equally diverse as the environment and context itself. In recognition of the talent and energy of these dedicated professionals, MAOT is pleased to introduce a new topic to our website titled “Special Feature: Our Profession at Work". Each month and when possible in conjunction with national awareness months/days, MAOT will highlight the work of an OT practitioner or group of practitioners in an interview format with accompanying visual images if available. Should you or someone you know be interested in showcasing your skills, please contact MAOT's Public Relations Representative, Ellie Meyer at email@example.com.
As February is National Low Vision Awareness Month we are pleased to present our first in this series of interviews. Cindy Zwicker is a COTA with more than 14 years of experience working in the area of low vision. She is currently employed by Life Care Centers of America at The Highlands in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, although she is often asked to travel to other Life Care facilities in the state to offer her expert assistance in difficult situations.
