Emily McCarthy—Gillette Children’s occupational therapist – "I love the diversity and specialty areas I get to work with at Gillette Children’s. It’s amazing to be part of an organization that has continued to meet the needs of the community for 125 years.”
“I always wanted to be in the healthcare field working with people, and when I was in college, I was a Personal Care Aide (PCA) for both a child with Downs Syndrome and a young woman with a spinal cord injury. I went to therapy services with them. I thought occupational therapy was fascinating because you can work with such a wide variety of people, all focusing to help improve their independence or quality of life."
