Vanessa Steinbugl, COTA
My name is Vanessa Steinbugl and I am an Occupational Therapy Assistant. I have been working with Rehab Associates since 2013. I enjoy working with my Occupational Therapy team at Licking Heights Local Schools and Johnstown Monroe Local Schools.
I have lived in the Central Ohio region since approximately 1983, after moving from Missouri. After earning a Bachelor’s of Science degree with a major in Zoology in 1995 from the Ohio State University, I was able to spend five exciting years as an animal keeper at the Wilds, in Cumberland, Ohio. After starting a family with my husband in 2001, I chose to stay home with our 2 children until they entered school. After completing the Occupational Therapy Assistant program in 2012 at Zane State University, I was fortunate to find Rehab Associates and discover the great world of school-based occupational therapy. I enjoy working within the school environment to help students, from kindergarten to 12th grade, be successful within their school career.
Outside of work, my family and I are avid animal lovers, choosing to care for a variety of pets from dogs, cats, reptiles, rodents/pocket pets, and fish. I enjoy spending time with my family by playing board games, taking hikes, and vacationing on the beach.
