About Moxie OT

Rachel, Veronica and Sarah on the Easter Sunday when Veronica went back to breast

Dr. Sarah Zera has been practicing occupational therapy since 2002. She specializes in helping people who have had a stroke or brain injury fully participate in their life. She received her B.S. in Occupational Therapy from Eastern Michigan University and her Doctorate of Occupational Therapy from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Dr. Zera studies how occupational therapists can improve the lives of their clients by helping them get back to the activities they love to do the most. She has helped clients return to shopping, cooking, work, caring for their pets, riding the bus, and more.

In her clinical experience, Dr. Zera noted how often clients were discharged from therapy, but had not yet returned to the activities they cared about most in life; caring for their children, going to work, playing sports, and all the other activities that bring us purpose and meaning. While working on her Doctorate in Occupational Therapy, she studied evidence-based practices that helped her clients return to their most valued and life-affirming activities. At Moxie OT, Dr. Zera aims to work with you in the places where you live your life throughout Chicagoland, providing you with the resources and skills necessary to take on new challenges long after your treatment is complete.

About The Moxie OT podcast

At Moxie OT, we recognize how difficult it can be for occupational therapy practitioners and advocates to stay up to date on evidence-based practice. We created the Moxie OT Podcast as a place for OTPs, consumers of occupational therapy, and friends of OT to talk about the best evidence in occupational therapy. We seek to provide evidence-based resources such as research articles, books, and online sources for OT advocates in an effort to increase their moxie.
