In honor of OT month, Therapy Center would like to spotlight a special therapist, Greta Gremillion Bordelon.
Where are you from?
How long have you been with Therapy Center?
I’ve been with TTC for 3 years.
Where did you receive your education?
I graduated from Louisiana State Univerity Health Sciences Center – New Orleans
Why did you choose to study to work in the therapy industry?
I’ve always wanted to help the geriatric population maintain their independence and pride. I’ve also found anatomy and rehabilitation so interesting and love challenging myself with outpatient diagnoses and rehabilitative techniques.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
The most rewarding part of my job would be the times when my patient’s thank me for what I have done for them, or to witness a patient improve and become more independent or hurt less. I also treasure my co-workers that have become true friends and confidantes. We truly have a great work environment.
What is the best thing about working for Therapy Center?
The best part about working for this company is the availability of our superiors. I know that if I have an issue, I can call any of the owners and be truly heard and cared about. I also like the flexibility that we have with our schedules.
Do you have any hobbies or any activities you enjoy doing most in your spare time?
I love to read and work in the yard. I also love to cook.
Greta, thank you for your time and commitment to Therapy Center!
