Physical and Occupational Therapists are essential in flattening the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic. They play a key role in keeping people they can help out of the doctor's offices and ER's. This will not only free up the medical teams to treat those impacted by COVID-19, but also limit the exposure of those seeking the care of the therapists.


Leticia Valadez OTR/L

Leticia grew up in the Sacramento valley and transitioned to Occupational Therapy after a decade of working in education for children and adults that culminated with teaching abroad. A new direction was established while living with and caring for her grandmother with lewy-body dementia. It's been a scenic route to OT but she loves the ability to draw on science, physiology, and patient's inherent interests and passions to facilitate healing and recovery. She's had the opportunity to work in acute care, inpatient rehab, and outpatient clinic settings up and down the west coast. She is PAMS certified.
