Wentworth-Douglass Manager Named President of NH Occupational Therapy Association

Occupational Therapy Manager, Danielle Amero, of Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, has been elected President of the New Hampshire Occupational Therapy Association (NHOTA).

“I’m incredibly excited about this opportunity and I’m grateful for the support and votes of confidence from everyone who participated in this election,” Amero said. “I love social policy and the legislative process, so I got involved to lead change and advocate for policies that support and advance our profession and treatment of patients.”

Amero, who began her two-year term on July 1, previously served for two years as the organization’s Legislative Chair where she provided leadership in the areas of professional advocacy, practice, and policy.

The NHOTA promotes and advances occupational therapy practices, and addresses professional issues, in New Hampshire.  NHOTA accomplishes this mission through education, legislation, and collaboration with The American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), consumers, community organizations, and other professional groups. 

“Danielle is an impactful leader and a highly skilled clinician within WDH Rehab Services. We’re thrilled she has been elected as President of the NHOTA,” said Senior Director of Rehabilitation Services and Integrative Therapies at Wentworth-Douglass, Kendra Langus. “I look forward to Danielle having an impact at the state level with this role. She is a true champion for the field of Occupational Therapy.”

Amero, a licensed occupational therapist and Certified Hand Therapist practicing since 1993, received her Doctor of Occupational Therapy in 2018.  She has worked at Wentworth-Douglass since 2017, serving the past two years as her department’s manager. 

“I believe this group of professionals will accomplish great things for occupational therapy,” Amero said.
