Alta has lived in Hutchinson for 23 years. She has been involved in healthcare since 2007. She graduated from Brown Mackie College in Salina and has worked as a certified occupational therapist assistant for 10 years, mostly in skilled nursing settings. She enjoys helping residents and patients return to their daily lives and activities.

Sammy has been a licensed occupational therapist for 11 years with 4 of those were spent in his home country of India. He has experience in multi-cultural health companies and has been flexible in learning new healing methods. He received his doctorate in occupational therapy in 2023.
