Meet Jamie McIntosh, CCH Occupational Therapist Assistant

Meet Jamie McIntosh, CCH Occupational Therapist Assistant

Did you know that April is Occupational Therapy Awareness month? In honor of this recognition, Campbell County Health wanted to shed some light on this profession and introduce our therapists.

Jamie McIntosh is an Occupational Therapist Assistant who works with three other occupational therapists at Campbell County Health Rehabilitation Services. Jamie graduated from the Casper College Occupational Therapy Assistant program in 2013, and has worked in Short Term Rehabilitation, skilled nursing facilities and home health settings following graduation. “I enjoy working with patients with neurological issues, and have furthered my education in stroke rehab, splinting techniques and myofascial release,” she says.

She likes working in Occupational Therapy because she believes it’s a way to help people live the best life they can with the cards they have been dealt. “We are not just fixing (our patients), we are helping them to live the best life possible,” she says.

Jamie said she became an Occupational Therapist Assistant because she loved the thought of helping people and the ability to make a difference in people’s lives. “My favorite thing about my profession is our ability to think outside of the box,” she says. “Occupational therapy has the ability to look holistically at our patients and use many different interventions to increase a patient’s function.”

She wants the community members in Gillette, Wyoming to know that therapy at CCH Rehabilitation Services offers a larger variety of skill sets because of the diversity in the staff, which gives them the ability to treat many different diagnoses with a good functional outcome.

Thank you, Jamie, for being a part of the team at Occupational Therapy at CCH Rehabilitation Services.

Occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people of all ages participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. Unlike other professions, occupational therapy helps people function in all of their environments—for example, at home, work, school and in the community—as well as addresses the physical, psychological, and cognitive aspects of their well-being through activities. Occupational therapy services are available to patients at the Stocktrail Building, or in the comfort of their own home.
