Shining Star Award Recipients

2021 Recipient: Judith Cissell McAnelly, OTR, CHT


As a Master of Occupational Therapy student at Texas Woman's University, Judith was introduced to hand therapy during a class field trip to LBJ Hospital.  That one interaction led to a fulfilling career as a Certified Hand Therapist working with many amazing hand therapists and surgeons in both Houston and Dallas.  She has participated at both local and regional levels for the advancement of hand therapy.  She has worked in a variety of settings, though mentoring was where she has found the greatest fulfillment.  Recently, Judith has shifted her focus to  stroke rehab as she completes her Master's degree in Landscape Architecture.
