Dr. Sarah Tuberty, OTR/L
Here for the hard conversations, Sarah Tuberty embraces vulnerability and she shares her lived experiences combined with her educational background in Occupational Therapy to challenge the stigma disability and re-write the narrative for a more inclusive society. She empowers all of us to own our own stories, to free ourselves from shame, find pride in ourselves for a more understanding and inclusive society.
Helping people engage in meaningful activities
Empowering others to use their voice on stage
Expanding possibilities all over the world
Sarah is kind, funny, optimistic, resilient and very smart. Although I thought I knew her well before I served as her mentor for her occupational therapy doctorate project last summer, I learned during our time together that she is also extremely focused and thorough, and impressively well-organized.
The website she created as her doctorate project (shrinerschildrens.org/handdifferences) is comprehensive, useful, and user-friendly.
What impresses me most about Sarah is her passion and energy for promoting disability awareness and her efforts to eliminate the stigma of hand differences.
