Our guest speaker is Keelin Nickerson.  She specializes in teaching clients and others fall prevention and balance.  We have all probably experienced a fall in our lives, but it is especially more probable as we age.  It is also more serious as we age.  We need all the information we can get on how to improve our balance and prevent falls.  This is a much-needed event!  Keelin Nickerson, MSOT, OTR/L, is an Occupational Therapist who received her Master of Science in Occupational Therapy from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.  She received her B.S. in Exercise Science from Colorado Mesa University.  As a born and bred local of the Durango area, she wants to help individuals age in place.  Spending time with and caretaking for her grandmother opened her eyes to how important fall prevention is to be able to continue to age in the home.  Her presentation will incorporate different strategies to implement looking at environmental and overall health as a first line of defense.  When she is not working, she enjoys snowboarding, spending time with her dog, hiking, and a good meal.
