Licensed Occupational Therapist
Certified Hand Therapist
Hand and Upper Extremity Specialist
20+ years experience in hand and upper extremity therapy
Being with people and especially being able to help them are Maureen Parker's passions. After following these interests into an occupational therapy career, she chose to specialize in hand therapy because, she says, "I love working with the hand and am continually amazed with its intricacies."
Maureen holds a Masters degree in healthcare administration from California State University Los Angeles, 1992 and a Bachelor of Science degree in occupational therapy from San Jose State University, 1988. She is a Certified Hand Therapist and has completed extensive training in customized splinting techniques. She is a member of the American Society of Hand Therapists.
Starting in 2008, she has been "giving her best" at Torrance Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group. "But I get so much more…patients whose progress inspires me, wonderful coworkers, and a top-notch facility to do the best work in the world!" Between family life with her husband and four children and an extensive hand therapy career, Maureen Parker still finds time to take long walks along The Strand.
