The January Therapist of the Month is Megan Burkdoll, OT. Megan completed a Master of Occupational Therapy from the University of Oklahoma. She is also certified to perform Functional Capacity Evaluations. She is currently studying for the Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) board examination (good luck, Megan!). Additionally, she is a board member for the Oklahoma Occupational Therapy Association (OKOTA).
Megan is a Tulsa-area native. She was born and raised in Broken Arrow and attended Bishop Kelley High School.
Megan says her favorite part about being an OT is getting to help patients return to the activities that bring meaning to their lives. “Being an occupational therapist has provided me with the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of hobbies, careers, and roles that I may not otherwise get to experience.”
Megan is a newlywed – she and her husband were married in June 2019. Their 1-year-old puppy, Tripp, keeps them busy.
Congratulations, Megan! Thanks for taking such great care of Tulsa Bone & Joint occupational therapy patients!
