Welcome to Amplify OT! 🌟 I’m so glad you’re here.

This page is custom-built just for you and your program. It is so exciting that you are on your way to becoming an occupational therapist! Your role in this profession is critical, and I can’t wait to support you on that journey.

Oh gosh, I haven’t introduced myself yet!

I’m Clarice Grote, MS, OTR/L. I’m an occupational therapist and Medicare specialist. I’m originally from Kansas City, MO (not Kansas), but I currently live in Durham, NC! I’ve worked in home health, acute care, outpatient, and dabbled in lymphedema and wound care. I founded Amplify OT in 2020 because I wanted a way to share information on policy and reimbursement with students and practitioners like you!

I gained my initial interest in policy as a student in the first year of my program. I realized a lot was on the line for healthcare in 2016, and I wanted to make sure my voice was heard. So, after researching some opportunities, I decided to apply for a Level II Fieldwork with the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), with their Federal Affairs Team. Fortunately, I was accepted, and I had the pleasure of working with them for three months in the fall of 2017. This means I lived in DC, went to AOTA’s office, and advocate for OT to Congress! It was amazing.

Since then, I’ve continued to seek out opportunities to get involved. I was the Advocacy & Policy Coordinator for AOTA’s Home and Community Health Special Interest Section from 2018-2021 and the Missouri Occupational Therapy Association’s Director of Practice from 2019 – 2021. I’m also an ambassador for the American Occupational Therapy Political Action Committee in North Carolina. I’ve also written a bunch of articles for AOTA, which you can find on my About Me Page. 😀

Now, what you may have noticed, is I got involved really early and so can you! You don’t need 10 degrees, 6 certifications, and 20 years of experience to be an advocate or leader in our field. You just need some passion!

I’m looking forward to having you here, having you take my course, and getting to know you!
