RVNA is pleased to welcome Sarah Triano, OTR/L who is rejoining the RVNA rehabilitation team as an occupational therapist (OT) primarily serving patients in RVNA’s outpatient therapy center at 27 Governor Street. Triano originally worked for RVNA in 2015 as a per diem OT caring for patients in their homes. Since that time, RVNA has expanded our rehabilitation program through new programs and disciplines, as well as through the addition of our onsite rehabilitation center.
As an Occupational Therapist, Triano works with patients of various diagnoses, both orthopedic and neurological – ranging from rotator cuff repair, total shoulder replacement, tennis elbow, and basic hand dysfunction to Parkinson’s disease and stroke patients — helping them re-learn everyday tasks and activities. Triano is responsible for evaluating patients, developing and executing appropriate plans of care, and ensuring that therapeutic goals are met. “Sarah’s depth of experience and expertise will truly benefit our patients in so many ways,” says Gigi Weiss, director of rehabilitation at RVNA, “and having Sarah onsite, yet also available for home visits, offers our OT patients excellent options for continuous and consistent care as they meet their goals.”
Prior to RVNA, Triano worked at Norwalk Hospital and New England Home Care, mastering skills in acute inpatient rehabilitation, acute care, sub-acute care, and outpatient settings. Triano earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Iona College, as well as a second bachelor’s degree in Health Science and a Master’s in Occupational Therapy, both from Mercy College. Triano also holds a Health Counseling certification.
Triano resides in Ridgefield with her husband Paul, and their children, Aiden, 7, and Mia, 5. In her free time, Triano can be found with her family, enjoying the outdoors as well as travel near and far.
