Brittany Mitchell, MS, OTR/L

OrthoVirginia Offices

Brittany was first drawn to therapy when she was a patient receiving physical therapy services after an injury. Her physical therapist would have her often perform her exercises next to the hand therapy table and Brittany grew to have a deep interest in hand therapy. From here, she decided to pursue a career in Occupational Therapy with the ultimate goal to become a Certified Hand Therapist.

Brittany has a love of custom splint fabrication and interacting with her patients. She enjoys listening and getting to know her patients well in order to better treat them so they can live an independent and functional lifestyle using their upper extremity. In her free time Brittany enjoys spending time with her husband and two children and traveling to visit friends and family.
