Sally first developed an interest in hand therapy while working on her degree in Occupational Therapy from Indiana University. She received her formal training in hand therapy at the Indiana Hand to Shoulder Center in Indianapolis and became a Certified Hand Therapist in 1995. Over the years she has had the opportunity to train and work side by side with some of the world’s most talented hand surgeons and hand therapists. She began lecturing in 1990 and since then has been a regular faculty member at Hand Care, a biannual hand and upper extremity meeting held in Indianapolis.
Sally is a contributing author to The Diagnosis and Treatment Manual For Physicians and Therapists and enjoys mentoring therapists new to the field of hand therapy. As a senior therapist and clinical supervisor she assisted in the training and mentoring of dozens of hand fellows and hand therapists. Always eager to expand her knowledge, Sally has also worked on site at businesses providing ergonomic and injury prevention advice, and has lectured to private clubs and groups about preventing hand and upper extremity injuries. Currently, Sally works at Community Health Network and lives in Indianapolis with her husband, daughter and two dogs.
