It’s Occupational Therapy Month, so we are honoring our Shining Stars who are OTs.
Our first Shining Star this issue is Shannon Modjeski, OT. Shannon works at Avamere Rehabilitation of King City in King City, Oregon.
Here is what his nominator had to say.
Shannon has an amazing eye for ingenuity! She has found creative and practical ways to make group activities for her patients as well as integrating ADLs into tasks that she can easily scaffold with patients of varying levels.
Shannon’s positive attitude and willingness to adapt demonstrate her constant ability to go the extra mile. Whether it’s a challenging patient with dementia or a young patient with a life-changing disability, Shannon has proven that anyone can be won over and achieve their goals!
Shannon does her homework on her patients, often making an extra effort to understand their medical history by consulting with the interdisciplinary team. She has a unique ability to apply her knowledge into a thoughtful care plan for her patient’s based on this information.
