Prineville Clinic

Hayley Hoggarth, OTR/L, CEAD began her path to occupational therapy in New Zealand where she accepted a student-internship, which included hosting the country’s Youth Paralympic Games.

She then received her Masters in Occupational Therapy from Touro University Nevada in 2015 and spent the first three years of her career in short-term and long-term Skilled Nursing rehabilitation. During her time there, she worked with patients on functional improvements for a variety of diagnoses and conditions, including contracture management through splinting. She followed her passion for orthosis fabrication and transitioned to outpatient hand therapy in 2018.

Through the Pandemic, Hayley found many of her patients were suffering upper extremity injuries due to the abrupt transition of working from-home, and that they did not have a supportive ergonomic environment. She obtained her CEAS certification (Certified Ergonomics Assessment Specialist) in 2020 and has seen how valuable ergonomics education and training can be for her patient’s recovery.

Hoggarth is grateful to be part of Rebound Physical Therapy, and for the support of her talented colleagues as she pursues her certification as a Hand Therapist.

Hayley is joyfully joining her husband, Justin Hoggarth, DPT and Clinic Manager at the Prineville Clinic. She is looking forward to growing the Hand Therapy Program in Prineville and serving the community with new resources.

Some of Hayley’s hidden talents outside of the clinic include line dancing, sewing, and baking with her sourdough starter.
