  1. Meet Us Monday - Meet Heather Ott, Therapeutic Recreation Specialist

  2. Do you have any kids or pets? My roommate has a dog and she is more a human than a pet, and she loves hogging the bed!
  3. If you could choose a superpower, what would it be? Super Power, hands down would be teleportation! I hate how long it takes to get somewhere!
  4. What is your favorite food? Food that other people make! Cooking is not my favorite chore.
  5. If you could travel anywhere where would you go? North Carolina to see my boyfriend!
  6. What is your favorite musician/band/type of music? I love Power-Pop/ Punk but it’s hay-day is a few years ago. My favorites are All Time Low, Hey Monday, Capital Lights and FTSK (but only their Underdog Alma Mater (very important detail)).
  7. What drew you to Gillette? I have always loved to care for kids. I loved babysitting & playing with my little cousins at family functions. So once I found TR, Gillette was a no brainer!
  8. Do you have a favorite story/memory from Gillette? My very first day and very first patient at Gillette was a little boy maybe 4 or 5 he had these cute little thick rimmed light blue glasses, blonde curly hair and a gigantic smile. He was actually featured a month later in a Gillette family focus and I was able to say that he was MY patient. I won’t ever forget that, I was able to say, I in some way added in his recovery, even if it was just for a moment.
  9. What do you enjoy most about your job at Gillette? My co-workers, the patients and the families. I love interacting with all of them. Every day is different and at some point during the day, I am laughing because of it.
