Kellan Quigley, OTD, MS, OTR/L,  is an Academic Fieldwork Coordinator and Assistant Professor at the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USAHS). Dr. Quigley was the Lead Occupational Therapist and Clinical Coordinator for multidisciplinary rehabilitation services at Strive! Rehabilitation/Ocala Health in Ocala, FL.

Upon graduating in 2012 from Western Michigan University with his Master of Science in Occupational Therapy, Dr. Quigley relocated to Gainesville, FL and initiated his career in acute inpatient rehabilitation. Within a year, he transitioned to a newly developing trauma therapy team at Ocala Regional Medical Center as a contracted employee with Strive! Rehabilitation. This particular clinical environment allowed him to advance and accelerate in acute traumatology, geriatrics, bariatrics, orthopedic and stroke rehabilitation. Within the acute setting, Dr. Quigley served as Lead Occupational Therapist whose responsibilities included: new graduate training, protocol development, clinical instruction/clinical coordination, as well as collaboration with interdisciplinary medical services to maximize patient outcomes.

In addition, Dr. Quigley’s clinical time was focused on specialized treatment of the upper extremity under the mentorship of well-established certified hand therapists. In conjunction with his outpatient practices, he had the opportunity to become certified in functional capacity evaluation, completing his training through Ergoscience. Most recently, Dr. Quigley completed his Post-professional Doctor of Occupational Therapy with focus in education and executive leadership in healthcare administration at USAHS.
