National Occupational Therapy Month - Tamika Banks
April is National Occupational Therapy Month, and we are excited to highlight some of our incredibly hard working therapists here at FutureCare! Today we would like to feature Tamika Banks, Assistant Rehab Director at FutureCare Capital Region. Tamika resides in Montgomery County and started as a PRN contractor with FutureCare in 2005 and joined us full time in 2007.
Tamika first decided she wanted to pursue occupational therapy when she was a senior in high school when she read a magazine article listing OT as a top job prompting her to seek more information. She says that one of her biggest joys of being an OT is witnessing the progression of a client from start to finish and whatever functional outcomes they achieve during therapy.
Outside of work, Tamika enjoys spending time with her family and traveling. One fun fact about her is that she hates the sound of folding papers, which as an OT she says "can be quite interesting!" Thank you Tamika for the invaluable care that you provide to your clients.
