Nickelle Squire, COTA
Nickelle Squire and her three-year-old son are looking forward to becoming more involved in the Manti community. She has accepted a job with Therapy West working as a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant. Nickelle graduated from the Salt Lake Community College in 2010. Prior to moving to Manti, she worked for five years at the Provo Nursing and Rehabilitation Center where she helped long-term patients who had strokes, pneumonia, fractures of bones and total knee replacements. Nickelle is skilled with the Trachea and Ventilation machine that is used for patients who cannot breathe on their own. She will focus her time at the Gunnison Hospital and the Community Living Center in Centerfield.
"My goal is to reeducate patients on simple daily tasks and to provide care that is fun and exciting so people are motivated to get back to their preferred level of function. I work hard gaining their trust so they know I have their best interest in mind. I develop treatments that are personalized and individualized so when they return home they can do as they did before." Nickelle enjoys spending time with her family (located in the area) and her son, riding horses and going for rides on the 4-wheeler.
