Dr. Glick's journey in occupational therapy began in 1993 when she earned her bachelor's degree from Colorado State University. Subsequently, she pursued her post-professional doctorate at Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions in Provo, Utah. With a wealth of experience in the field, she cherishes the diverse learning opportunities her career has provided, enabling her to both learn and teach.

In her early career, Dr. Glick specialized in Hand Therapy.  She then embarked on a year-long journey as a traveling therapist, gaining expertise in physical dysfunction and treating various diagnoses. Her career path then led her to specialize in pediatric care. She served at the Muscular Dystrophy Clinic of a local hospital. Later, she returned to outpatient orthopedics, focusing on upper extremity injuries. Dr. Glick's dedication led her to present at the Occupational Therapy Association of California and create a three-day certified course based on practice standards and research, funded by NHTSA & SJSU. She also excelled as an ergonomics presenter and trainer, passing rigorous national exams, including the Certified Hand Therapy national exam which she passed in 2008.

At DASH Therapy, Dr. Glick specializes in serving both the patients with hand injuries and children with disabilities.  She oversees the ever-growing pediatric clinic with her extensive knowledge and expertise.  

Dr. Glick, originally from Colorado, has called the Central Valley home for over two decades. Married with a son, she takes pleasure in California's outdoor activities, particularly in the local mountains and along the central coast. Her commitment to serving her community fills her with pride, and she continues to be grateful for the opportunity to make a difference through her work.
