Janie Pearson, OTR/CLT received her degree in Occupational Therapy in 1992 from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia and her first certification in lymphedema in 2002. She devoted the following eleven years primarily to the treatment of upper and lower body lymphedema as well as to breast cancer rehabilitation at Womans Hospital in Baton Rouge, LA. In 2010 she stepped away from the world of lymphedema in order to gain experience working with patients with a variety of diagnoses in home health, rehabilitation, long term care, and skilled nursing settings. During this time she was accepted and trained through Canine Companions for Independence and was matched with “Leena”, a service dog, which she incorporates into her therapy treatments with her patients. Recently, her passion to work with patients with lymphedema inspired her towards her third certification as an MLD/CDT through the Academy of Lymphatic Studies.
