Kelly Germann, OTR/L, CHT
Certified Hand and Occupational Therapist
Kelly Germann earned her Master’s of Science in Occupational Therapy in 1997 from Washington University in St. Louis. Originally from Chicago, she worked as a hand therapist at Holy Cross hospital and then Loyola University Medical Center where she learned from many experienced therapists and doctors. She received her certification in hand therapy in 2003 and moved to Seattle in 2004.
She has worked as an Occupational Therapist for more than two decades and joined the Seattle Orthopedic Center team in 2006. She is fluent in Spanish, although she does not have as many opportunities to speak the language in Seattle as she did in Chicago. She learned Spanish in college, and worked in the Veterans hospital in Puerto Rico as an Occupational Therapy internship.
During the years of practicing therapy, she has taken numerous continuing education courses. Her specialties include: ergonomics, kineseotaping, soft tissue mobilization and fabrication of custom orthoses. In 2018, Kelly was recognized in Seattle Magazine’s list of “Top Doctors” under the Physical Therapy section.
In her spare time, Kelly enjoys camping, hiking, and snowboarding with her family, along with exploring the Pacific Northwest.
