Nominations for MOTA Board

Below please find the current nominees for the MOTA Board.  It is not too late.  If you would like to run, please contact me at keglseder@towson.edu

President Elect-


Lori Patria, MS, OTR/L:  I respectfully submit my name for consideration for MOTA President Elect.  I have the  privilege of serving as the current MOTA Treasurer where I have been responsible for preparing the budget for board approval, keeping an account of all financial transactions and tracking performance to budget, ensuring completion of all tax related documents, and actively participating in all board activities.  In my 25+ years of experience as an occupational therapist I have served in many roles such as  Director of Therapy Services at University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute, Adjunct Faculty at Towson University and Community College of Baltimore County, Communication Liaison for AOTA Physical Disabilities Special Interest Section (2 terms), member of the Baltimore City Mayor’s Commission on Disabilities, and manager for the Maryland Mayhem wheelchair rugby team.  All of these roles have provided me with experience in leadership, financial management, teaching/mentoring, advocacy, and project management.  These skills are valuable to the role of President Elect in not only managing the finances of our association but also playing a role in our mission which is to represent, support and advance the practice of occupational therapy in the State of Maryland.  I would be honored to have the opportunity to serve in this role and work with our board and membership to grow and strengthen our professional association.


VP Human Relations


Chetna Sethi, PhD, OTR/L:  I am interested in serving as the Vice President for Human Relations for the Maryland Occupational Therapy Association. I am a passionate occupational therapist and love to promote the far-reaching goals of occupational therapy to people that are not familiar with what we do. I have previous experience with promoting “DisABILITY Awareness” at Saint Louis University as I served as the PR chair of the DisABILITY Awareness Month Campaign organized by the department of Occupational Therapy and Occupational Science from 2010-2012. Additionally, I believe that our growth as a profession is only as good as our visibility to the general public. I am knowledgeable and experienced with using social media as a means to increase this visibility. Finally, as a new member of MOTA having recently moved to the area, this opportunity will allow me to network with the wonderful OTs in the community


VP Communications


Justine K. Stull graduated from Towson University with a BS/MS in occupational therapy, as well as a BS in psychology, in 2006. She has been regularly involved with MOTA since college. After graduation, Justine worked with children who have Autism Spectrum Disorders as a Family Trainer and OT for an Autism Waiver Provider. She also previously served as the MOTA VP of Public Relations and briefly worked for Towson University helping conduct Family Quality of Life research.  


Currently, she has the privilege of staying home with her two children. Over the last four years, she has supported their Baltimore County elementary school as a Parent Teacher Association (PTA) secretary and most recently, as PTA President. Even outside occupational therapy employment, she has relied on her OT training. These skills have been invaluable for planning events, working with teams, and advocating for her school. 


Justine's devotion to occupational therapy and to MOTA has led to her volunteer to fill the VP of Communications position. She will also bring experience writing a newsletter and conducting social media outreach to this role. She looks forward to the opportunity to support OT and MOTA in our state. 


Student Representative


Marley Merrick:  I am from Garrett County, MD. I am just finishing my first year in Towson's BS/MS Occupational Therapy program. Outside of school, I am part of SOTA and Tiger Assistance Dogs. I enjoy staying active spending time outside with my family, friends, and dogs. 

 I chose OT as my career of interest because I fell in love with the idea of providing health care to to others while also providing meaning and purpose to health care. I am interested in being the student representative for MOTA because I want to learn as much as I can inside and outside of school while being taught and working with my professors in MOTA. I believe that experience is the best learning tool, and I believe that being on the MOTA board would help enhance my learning experience.
