Jeanmarie Drudy OTR/L
Jeanmarie graduated cum laude from Elizabethtown College with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Occupational Therapy. She started her career at a local York area hospital as an inpatient Occupational Therapist servicing trauma, stroke and orthopedic patients. When she became supervisor of the inpatient and outpatient occupational therapy departments, she was asked by local plastic and orthopedic surgeons to participate in observing hand/upper extremity surgeries. She learned a wealth of knowledge about the anatomy and rehabilitation of the hand from this experience. In 1990, Jeanmarie started her own hand therapy practice. She enjoyed running her own business, watching it grow and furthering her knowledge of hand rehabilitation for the next 15 years.
Jeanmarie and Joe joined in 2010 to open Occupational & Hand Therapy Specialists, Inc., York’s first and only independent clinic dedicated to hand and upper extremity rehabilitation. She enjoys the one-on-one treatments that she can provide to her patients, and she continues to maintain close relationships with local physicians. Jeanmarie resides in York with her husband, Mike and enjoys traveling and spending time with her children, Patrick and Katie.
Melissa is the newest addition to the OHTS, Inc. team.
Melissa graduated from the honors program at Alvernia University with a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy, a Bachelor of Science in Health Science, and an Associate of Science for Occupational Therapy from Penn State. Prior to becoming a registered occupational therapist she worked as a certified occupational therapy assistant traveling to various inpatient rehabilitation settings throughout Lancaster and Reading, Pennsylvania. Specializing in hand therapy has been a longtime career goal for her as she completed her Master’s Thesis on the topic of upper extremity rehabilitation and completed two fieldwork rotations in outpatient settings that specialize in upper extremity rehabilitation.
While at Alvernia, Melissa was a competitive athlete and team captain of the University’s Track and Field Team. She was a four time NCAA National Qualifier and earned an All-American honor for her performance in the pole vault. Following her athletic career, Melissa coached both the men and women teams for the pole vault and high jump events at Alvernia University. She continues to enjoy vaulting whenever she can and also loves being outdoors, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
