President's Message

Hello UOTA members,

I am thrilled to be serving as your Utah Occupational Therapy Association (UOTA) President. Occupational Therapy (OT) has blossomed into an amazing and familiar profession in Utah’s health care arena with Utah OT practitioners known for contemporary and progressive occupational therapy practice. The UOTA organization supports OT practitioners, and with heart, works diligently to represent Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants across Utah. It is the UOTA that will lobby in the state legislature, place key professionals on agency boards, and represent your best interests. We are volunteers, that love our profession, who do this work.

The current Executive Board hopes to reach out to meet more of you. We want to hear from you, work alongside you on issues, and give you a sense of purpose as you make the difference in how our profession moves forward in Utah. Please help us generate this energy and excitement as we protect our domain and best interests in the legislature, bring continuing education locally, and expand the occupational therapy vision. Support the UOTA by becoming and remaining a member, so we can continue to support you.

Brenda K. Lyman, OTD, OTR/L
UOTA President
