Mashelle Painter

new profile 

Hello!  My name is Mashelle Painter and I am Faculty and Distance Education Coordinator with the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program, located at the Lebanon Center.

About me...

I have been an Occupational Therapy Assistant for over 30 years.  I received my Associate degree from Mt. Hood Community College in 1985.  In 2008, I received a BS in Liberal Studies from Eastern Oregon University and a MEd in Health and Kinesiology from the University of Texas at Tyler in 2012.

My OT background is in pediatrics, having worked primarily in K-12 school settings for most of my professional career. However, I also have clinical experience serving children and their families in community-based, private pediatric clinics.  I am a PATH-certified therapeutic riding instructor and I particularly enjoy working with children (and adults) using Hippotherapy, a therapeutic intervention using the dynamic movement of the horse.

On a personal note, I enjoy spending time with my family and playing on our tiny farm with my two spoiled Arabian horses.  I also love to cook and quilt, when time permits.

Courses I am teaching this year....

OTA 118 Documentation

OTA 119 Preparing for Success in the OTA Program

OTA 124A Physical Health Lab

OTA 140 Activity Analysis

OTA 222 Pediatric Theory & Practice

OTA 230 Administration & Management II

I also coordinate the laboratory component for the OTA program at our partner community colleges sites for our distance education students.  I am thoroughly enjoying working with everyone here at LBCC!
