Nina Nunez, OTR/L
Occupational Therapist—Oceanview Rehabilitation

As a person who grew up having a passion for Art and Science, I believe pursuing a career in
Occupational Therapy was the perfect choice for me. Combining my love for the Arts and having
knowledge of Occupational Science (study of human participation and occupation) and
Anatomy, I am able to help people become as functionally independent as possible. I enjoy my
job as it allows me to be creative with my treatment approach and design treatment plans
modeled after holistic ideals that address not only the body but also the mind and spirit.
