Kimberly Miller, OTR/L
“Being able to include children of all abilities in activities allows the kids to encourage one another and to see that everyone has strengths and weaknesses. To witness a child reach their goals and see them smile at accomplishments is great!”
Kim graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy; she also holds her NBCOT certification. Since March, 2009 Kim has been providing both school based and Early Intervention Occupational Services throughout McKean County via her position at CARE. In her previous position she provided both OT and special instruction services for the Early Intervention System since 2002.
Kim likes that CARE has given her the opportunity to work with a wider variety of kids in different settings and to meet and work with other professionals to increase her knowledge base and provide better service to clients. She also knows that as a therapist, every day brings new challenges and new rewards. She works hard to encourage children in her caseload to reach their full potential and to not be afraid to try new and more challenging tasks.
CARE provides opportunities for interaction with the kids outside of therapy and Kim notes how important that is because it gives therapists and staff members a chance to get to know them better and to see them interact with other kids and adults.
Kim resides in Rixford, PA with her husband Mike, three children and dog.
