Paula Berry, COTA

Occupational Therapist

My name is Paula Berry and I am a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant. I graduated from the Indiana School of Medicine with an Associate's degree in Occupational Therapy in 1987. I have worked in-patient mental health, long term care, rehabilitation, home health, First Steps, and with pre-school to high school age deaf students in the school setting. My passion is helping clients work towards being as independent as possible. I love cooking, crafting, and playing games with clients to encourage development of fine motor and self-help skills. I am currently waiting for my acceptance as a Handwriting Specialist in the Handwriting Without Tears program. I was recently accepted into the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International for women educators.
