Maureen E. Palmer, MS, OTRL is the Private Practice Occupational Therapy Clinic Owner of Focus Point Therapy, LLC, a leader in the provision of occupational therapy and adjunct modalities to adults and children in order to ensure patients reach their maximum level of potential. As an authority in the spheres of occupational therapy and cutting edge technology, Ms. Palmer offers her clients an array of services linked to occupational therapy, travels to homes, private schools, and visits doctors’ offices to tend to patients. She also gives depositions and provides training to nurses. Ms. Palmer became involved in her profession because she originally wanted to be a veterinarian. Her relatives owned farms and she spent a lot of time working with injured and newborn farm animals. However, her mother influenced her to try a career in occupational therapy, and she has been successful since. She worked at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan for 17 years in the acute care, rehabilitation, work hardening and outpatient departments. She introduced the first cancer patient/family education/support program to Michigan in 1980, which raised patient awareness. It was a program belonging to the American Cancer Society called the I Can Cope program, and oversaw the operations of the program for 10 years. She has led her private practice for over 10 years. She attributes her success to being a critical thinker and a problem solver contributing to the organization because of a deep passion for being an occupational therapist. She enjoys helping individuals improve their functional daily life skill and wants to significantly contribute because of the life experiences she has had, such as overcoming lymphoma at age 22. Ms. Palmer has taken her passion and love of learning to a new global level as she has produced the Focus Point Review show on VoiceAmerica.com Health and Wellness channel where she features guests from a variety of disciplines who are researchers and she gives voice to parents of children on the Autism spectrum and with Sensory Processing Disorders. She cares much, she loves deeply and she dreams big.
