GET TO KNOW YOUR THERAPIST
Nelly Paul, OTR, CLT, CPT, RYT
Graduating from UW-Milwaukee Occupational Therapy masters program in 2015, I started working in nursing homes then onto home health where I became familiar with many chronic diseases and debilitating injuries. I quickly became perplexed by the lack of treatment for my patients with swelling. I decided to take a shortened lymphatic education course and began attempting to treat lymphedema and swelling in the field. Soon after I realized treating lymphedema was what I felt most passionate about. I enjoyed the relationships and learning along the way. But, I felt like I wasn't getting the results I wanted so I sought out a 135 course to get my CLT certification through Norton School of Lymphedema. As I felt so passionate about helping all individuals with lymphedema, I realized I was ready to use the research based/clinical tools from my training by opening my own clinic.
Other than my OT degree, I personally found a love for yoga and mind/body training thus pursued a Yoga Training Certification in 2013 and a Personal Trainer Certification in 2020. I feel strongly I have a suitable background knowledge base to problem solve treatments for you’re needs and get you back to doing the activities you love! Overall, I believe in putting my clients first and providing exceptional customer service. Feel free to ask any questions you may have!
