November 2015 Newsletter


2015 IS COMING TO AN END; BUT WE HAVE GREAT NEWS, SWAN REHAB HAS MORE IN STORE FOR 2016!



2015 WRAP UP!

Kay Wing
Not only is SWAN Rehab a great place for anyone with a neurological condition, but it is a great place to work due to our phenomenal staff.

Our team would not be complete without the owner Kay Wing, who was recently nominated for the 2015 ATHENA Awards. Although she did not take home the win, we are proud she became a finalist. Take a moment to watch the video and learn more about the owner of SWAN Rehab.

Ashley White Gustaveson
SWAN Rehab also congratulates Ashley White Gustaveson who won Occupational Therapy Assistant of the Year! Ashley is a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant in our Comprehensive Vocational Rehabilitation Program (CVR). The CVR Program assists clients with brain or spinal cord injuries return to work.

SWAN Rehab is proud of both Ashley and Kay!
