Gordon stated;”I am so glad to be back living and working in my hometown of International Falls.
I chose to work at RLMC because I was able to experience the wonderful staff, patients, and facility as I completed my 12-week internship in the summer of 2016. The therapy staff at RLMC Therapy and Wellness department is so welcoming, helpful, and patient as I am a new graduate just beginning my Occupational therapy journey. Secondly, I chose RLMC because I have the privilege of working with all populations and settings in the scope of occupational therapy. I work with inpatients, long term care patients, outpatients, home health patients, and children in the ISD 361 school district. As a new graduate, this experience is very exciting as I get to build my skill set and learn something new every day. All days are different. I am very thankful to work with all of the therapy staff at The Wellness Center. Nancy Anderson, OTR/L and Meghann Cassibo, OTR/L have shared their OT knowledge with me daily and have taught me so much in just my four months here.”
In Gordon’s free time she enjoys sports and spending time with my family, friends, and her dog Trudy.
