Occupational Therapist in NJ

Jacqueline Schechtel, MS, OTR/L received her Master of Science degree in Occupational Therapy at Salus University. Her main focus is hand therapy, and she has experience with pediatric occupational therapy.

Jacqueline’s favorite part about being an Occupational Therapist is the therapeutic relationship she forms with her patients. She loves helping her patients achieve their goals and return to the activities that they love. We use our hands for almost every activity that we do, and she finds it so rewarding to see the patients return to activities that they value with less difficulty, more independence, and less pain.

Jacqueline likes to spend her free time with her friends, family, boyfriend, and black lab border collie mix, Lexi. She loves finding new places to explore, like cute towns and hiking trails. She also enjoys cooking and baking.
