As an Occupational Therapist and Sociologist, Anne is deeply committed to improving the lives of people with spinal cord injury. With more than twenty-five years of experience specializing in upper extremity management in people with cervical spinal cord injury, Anne leads the functional assessment program for upper extremity neuroprosthetics and reconstructive surgeries at MetroHealth and the Cleveland FES Center. Currently, she is responsible for leading the multi-center pivotal clinical trial for the Networked Neuroprosthesis (NNP) System, the latest innovation developed at the Cleveland FES Center. Her research interests include upper extremity assessment, surgical interventions, outcomes measurement, and the social determinants of health and wellness in people with chronic physical disability. Additionally, Anne is investigating the experiences of health and social resource navigation following spinal cord injury through the lens of human rights by measuring barriers and facilitators to obtaining supports necessary for improved quality of life. She is also conducting research on the human rights knowledge base of health professionals and other stakeholders involved in the care of people with spinal cord injury.
