Dr. Boucakis achieved her OTD through Thomas Jefferson University with a focus on innovative practices for older adults. Her Capstone focused on fall prevention to help reduce re-admittance and increase the quality of life of older adults within her community. To remain current in practice and continually aware of the ever changing world of healthcare, she continues to work per diem within the clinic. As an instructor Dr. Boucakis strives to combine evidence based practice and real world experiences with the client-centered and occupation focus of occupational therapy.
