Kelly Wilson, Occupational Therapist

Meet Kelly Wilson, Occupational Therapist in our Greater Kansas City Region!

“Often I find myself saying I can’t believe I get paid to do what I do. I love serving others, especially people who are possibly isolated and lonely because of health problems, disabilities, or age. When I’m meeting someone’s need, right where they are, I am filled with energy and a kind of joy that can only come through living out your calling. This is exactly how I feel working as a Phoenix Occupational Therapist.”

“Home care allows me to help people with their exact situation. I don’t have to simulate the approximate size and layout of someone’s bathroom who is planning to return home, I get to be there for the real thing, problem solving and practicing the exact skills needed to be safe and independent. I also find that people are more comfortable at home, and I love the level of relationship I get to experience with patients when working in this context.” 

“Phoenix is the best place I can even imagine working. I feel respected, understood, advocated for, and am constantly given the opportunities and support I need to keep expanding my skill set and to meet the needs of my patients. Phoenix feels like family.”

“Phoenix is by far the best job I have ever had. If you want to work hard and be rewarded for it, grow in your field, and be given the tools you need to provide the best patient care possible, then you should work at Phoenix. “

“The X Factor constitutes the very best parts of who we are/strive to be. For me it’s not just about my job, it’s about how I live my life– the optimism, gratitude, and hope I work to have with each day. When you’re someone that wants to live joyfully and passionately and you’re surrounded by other people doing the same thing, it not only makes it easier to achieve this perspective, but it elevates the experience. Iron sharpens iron, and we’re continually making each other better.”
