Jill Butkus, Occupational Therapist – MA, OTR

Jill earned her Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from the College of St. Scholastica in 2002.

Over the past 14 years she has worked briefly in fields that include acute care and home health care but has found that her passion is truly working with older adults in a sub-acute setting. The majority of her career has been working in skilled nursing facilities with both short term and long term residents.

She enjoys building relationships with patients over a longer rehabilitation stay and also enjoys hearing their life experiences. She has taken numerous continuing education courses on topics specific to older adults such as fall risk and dementia.

In her spare time she enjoys gardening and hiking the wonderful trails of northwestern Wisconsin with her husband and two children.
