Emily Damon, Occupational Therapy Assistant

Emily was introduced to hand therapy through one of her clinical rotations and discovered a passion for helping people return to their activities of daily living using one of the most utilized parts of the body. She is furthering her education and specialization in hand therapy to include the use of custom hand supports, scar release therapy, and active release techniques.

Emily continues to advance her hand therapy and occupational therapy assistant skills through continuing education and working closely with Certified Hand Therapists to provide the best care to all her patients. 

​When not working, Emily enjoys spending time with her husband, kids and pets at home or binging her favorite show, West Wing.
