Authors and Instructor

Wendy Hoogsteden, MHS, OTR/L obtained her degrees from the University of Florida and has been an Occupational Therapist for 19 years.

Her clinical practice experience has been diverse. Early in her career, Wendy's specialty areas included working with burn patients and those with low vision; however, her love of hand and upper extremity rehabilitation, directed her to practice in acute, sub-acute care, outpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing, and home health settings. There she was able to enhance her clinical expertise with patients who had hand and upper extremity issues, while working towards sitting for the CHT exam.

Wendy taught and lectured at Shands Teaching Hospital in Gainesville, FL on the subjects of pathophysiology and kinesiology.

Additional experience includes practice as a Certified Personal Conditioning Trainer and Community Health and Wellness Educator with specialty credentials in geriatrics, special needs and post-rehabilitation.

Clinical Consultant: Nancy Gianacakes, OTR/L, CHT is a graduate of Mount Mary College with a Bachelors degree in Occupational Therapy, obtaining her CHT in the HTCC inaugural board exam in 1991. With over 31 years of experience working in inpatient/outpatient rehab, she has spent most of her career (23 of those as a CHT) developing her skills and knowledge in hand and UE rehab. Her evaluation and treatment expertise has focused on an extensive array of UE injuries that include, but are not limited to: tendon/nerve repairs, burns, amputations, replantation’s, shark bites, congenital anomalies, fractures, arthritis, joint reconstruction, contractures, and sprains/strains/overuse syndromes. Nancy has gained extensive training and therefore expertise in ergonomic assessments where she assists local businesses to identify and implement solutions to ergonomic issues within the work environment. Additionally, she co-authored an article on the subject with colleague, Norman Harris, MD in the Florida Medical Journal, published in 1999. Her very successful private practice, HANDS. INC. was formed in 1989, which expanded to multiple hand rehab clinics servicing clients with injuries of the upper extremity in the Tampa Bay area.
