Brenda Coram, OTR/L – Occupational Therapist

Brenda CoramBrenda Coram graduated from St. Ambrose University with a B.S. in Occupational Therapy and a B.A. in Psychology. As an Occupational Therapist with Monroe County Hospital & Clinics (MCHC), Brenda works with clients to help them achieve a fulfilled and satisfied state in life through the use of purposeful activity or interventions designed to achieve functional outcomes which promote health, prevent injury or disability and which develop, improve, sustain or restore the highest possible level of independence. Brenda helps individuals who have conditions that are mentally, physically, developmentally, socially or emotionally disabling to improve their ability to perform tasks in their daily living and working environments.

As a child, Brenda’s passion was in optometry. An interesting fact is, there is an overlap between optometry and occupational therapy. As an Occupational Therapist, a person works on visual perceptual skills and there is a field of developmental optometry that works on that as well. Brenda states, “The opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives inspired me to become an occupational therapist.” Brenda enjoys helping her patients most. Brenda expresses, “I really enjoy the geriatric population and hearing their stories.”
