Erica Tambrini, MS, OTRL
I fell in love with the field of occupational therapy after my own personal experiences as a patient. I contracted bacterial meningitis at the age of 19 which resulted in quadruple amputations. I decided to switch tracks from teaching high school math to becoming an occupational therapist because of how accommodating and adaptable this field is. The people I have met and experiences along the way have been extremely rewarding. I hope to touch each and every patient the way I was.
I graduated from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign with a bachelors of science in kinesiology and went on to earn my masters in occupational therapy from Rush University in Chicago. I have worked with patients across the lifespan in both physical rehab and mental health settings.
When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I have two crazy kiddos who are my pride and joy, it’s amazing how adaptable and accommodating kids can be in the midst of adversity. We enjoy being outside as much as possible and spending time with our two dogs.
