Hi, I'm Melissa!
I have been a San Antonio occupational therapy graduate from University of Texas Health Science Center and have been practicing OT for 17 years. During this time I have seen patients/clients in the children and adults in long term acute care, acute care, out patient clinic, early childhood intervention, schools and home health. Each of these settings, families and therapists I have worked with have helped shaped the skills I have today.
I enjoy sharing the love for OT with students and families. The possibilities are endless in the profession! I am truly blessed to be an OT and part of a profession who enjoys seeing patients achieve new goals. One thing many may not know about me is I pray for my hands to complete His work. I am not a miracle worker but I know the one is!
Outside of OT, I love to travel and explore the great outdoors!
Hi! I’m Bonnita Grossnickle, but everyone calls me Bonnie.
I am a graduate of the OTA program at St. Philips College, am certified through the NBCOT and licensed to practice in the state of Texas.
I am married (for 21 years!) and the mother of three young men 23, 19 and 16 years old.
My hobbies are writing, embroidery, and playing table top games with my family.
I love to play with children! I’m always trying to think of new activities or new ways to engage in an activity in order to keep things fun and new and am always open to suggestions and input. I love to hear about your kids tell me all about them! Thank you so much for allowing me to come and get to know your children, and your family and I look forward to working with you all each and every day.
My name is Manuel Cruz (Manny) and I am an OT assistant. I went to school at St. Philips College and graduated in 2011. I have been working in Home Health Pediatrics for 6 years. I enjoy playing and watching all sports. Some of my hobbies include working out and riding my bike.
Hi, my name is Savannah I’m a Certified Occupational Therapist Assistant. I went to St. Philips College for OTA Program, graduated in 2009 with my degree in Applied Science. I’ve been in the pediatric home health setting for 11 years and still love it! I’m a full time employee for New Creation Therapy and I’m also in charge of marketing for our social media pages. Everyday is a new challenge that I welcome with open arms. I’ve been married 12 years and have three kiddos two boys 11yrs and 8yrs and one daughter 6yrs old. My oldest has Asperger syndrome, both my sons received Speech Therapy in the past. I feel that helps me as a clinician to be well rounded and it gives me a better insight, since I’ve been on both sides receiving therapy for my children and providing now to others. Family time is my number one favorite, we love taking our kids on trips especially to the beach! I enjoy all types of music and am pretty good at movie trivia.
