Lisa Juckett, MOT, OTR/L has been an occupational therapy practitioner within adult rehabilitation since 2010. She is currently a first year, part-time PhD student within the College of Social Work.

Her past research experience has included the following: safety issues for children with autism spectrum disorders, hand orthoses after stroke, and interventions for the upper limb after stroke.

She currently is on faculty with The Ohio State University College of Medicine’s Occupational Therapy Department.
