Congratulations are in order for Amanda Krieg, occupational therapy assistant at Sprenger Health Care Amherst Manor. She was nominated by Jennifer Loeser, S/OTA, for the supervisor award through the EHOVE mentorship program. Specifically, Amanda worked with Ms. Loeser through that EHOVE’s adult career center occupational therapy assistant partnership.
Amanda has been with Sprenger Health Care for 4 years, and has worked in the healthcare industry for 20 years. During this time, she has hosted many students and is an excellent teacher. Ms. Loeser wrote the following about Amanda:
“I would like to nominate Amanda Krieg for the supervisor award. I could not have had a better experience for my first level II rotation. She, and the whole Sprenger therapy team at Amherst Manor, made me feel comfortable and allowed me to ask questions as well as giving me feedback and help where I needed it. Amanda was encouraging and always knew when I needed her to jump in for help, and for advice. I feel she truly allowed me to grow into becoming a COTA. She planted a good seed for me to build on, and showed me how to talk to patients with true compassion. She was a teacher without making me feel out-of-place or inadequate. I truly feel she should earn this award. It is difficult to put into words how wonderful she made me feel throughout my first rotation and how much I learned from her.”
