Sarah earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Auburn University, and her Master’s of Science in Occupational Therapy from Alabama State University.  Her outpatient experience includes The Orthopaedic Center in Huntsville, Alabama, and most recently, Central Maine Therapy Services in Lewiston.  Sarah’s specialties include post operative management of hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder injuries, along with a variety of ergonomic and occupational health assessments and interventions.  She also has extensive experience with customized orthotic fabrication, casting, and splinting.

Physical Therapist Peter Madore, CPT’s Clinic Manager in Bangor, is looking forward to working with Sarah.  “Sarah’s advanced skills and experience provide an important complement to the rehab programs at CPT, enabling not only direct referrals of Occupational Therapy, but enhancing our physical therapy treatment as well.”

CPT General Manager Richard Ezzy also feels Sarah is a big addition to the CPT Team.  “Sarah genuinely cares about her patients and has an enthusiastic personality that is very motivating.  She is results-driven in her treatment philosophy, with very high patient satisfaction.  With our Bangor clinic now in its second year, she will be another plus to our already strong team in Bangor.”
