Jillian Patterson OTR/L
Jillian was inspired to be a hand therapist when she saw her little brother having difficulty using his index finger since birth. She witnessed her little brother’s first hand therapy session with an Occupational Therapist and was hooked! Jillian then went to Arizona State University where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus in Psychology and Wellness foundations. She then attended A.T. Still University in Mesa, Arizona where she earned her Master of Science in Occupational Therapy. After interning as a student at Desert Hand and Physical Therapy, she fell in love with the work culture and the people receiving hand therapy. She now works with the team at Desert Hand and strives to provide the best quality of hand care to her patients.
