Pooja completed her undergraduate studies at Rutgers University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and a minor in Psychology. She graduated from Clarkson University in 2021 with a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy and is a registered Occupational Therapist with the National Board of Certification for Occupational Therapy. During her fieldwork, Pooja treated patients with various musculoskeletal conditions, neurological conditions, cardiac conditions, and post-surgical conditions.
Via her fieldwork experiences, Pooja can design and implement treatment plans to enhance occupational engagement for varying age groups ranging from children to older adults. Pooja considers your body, everyday habits, routines, and roles when treating any functional limitations while focusing on your unique needs to improve your quality of life. Pooja’s therapeutic skills within the occupational therapy scope of practice include but are not limited to upper extremity conditions and limitations, fine/gross motor limitations, balance training, work simplification/energy conservation, functional mobility, body ergonomics/lifting technique training, functional limitations with activities of daily living (i.e., dressing, bathing, grooming), and limitations with instrumental daily activities (i.e., home management tasks such as cooking, cleaning, driving). Pooja plans on furthering her skills through various therapeutic based courses and certifications. During her free time, Pooja enjoys traveling, watching movies and tv shows, and spending time with friends/family.
