Katie Richter graduated from Mercy College with a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy in 2019 after earning a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Stockton University in 2015. Her education has provided her with a unique perspective on human interaction, both psychologically and through the use of activity analysis. Katie uses a holistic approach when treating her patients, allowing her to improve all aspects of a patient’s life, not only by improving their physical symptoms.
Katie has experience in treating people throughout at various stages of life and is certified in the use of Physical Agent Modalities. During her time as a graduate student at Mercy College, she participated in research in order to determine the importance of working as an interdisciplinary healthcare team and appreciates working closely with other healthcare providers on her patients’ cases. This research was presented at the Jefferson College Interprofessional Care for the 21st Century conference in 2018. Katie is a member of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) as well as the New Jersey Occupational Therapy Association (NJOTA) and hopes to earn a Certification in Hand Therapy (CHT) in the near future.
