Teaneck’s Karen Willick Appointed Clinic Manager at POTS

(Courtesy of POTS) Dr. Chaye Lamm Warburg, director of pediatric occupational therapy services (POTS, has announced the appointment of Karen (KB) Willick, OT as clinic manager.

In her new role, Willick will oversee a clinical staff of occupational, physical, speech, feeding, sensory integration, and aqua therapists. She is now responsible for hiring, training, and supervising therapists, managing POTS’ service in schools, and developing new programs.

For Willick, the leadership role is an exciting opportunity to foster teamwork and collaboration which enhances patient care. “I’ve always believed that we shouldn’t place limits on our expectations for our patients,” she explained. “With patience and perseverance, we can help patients reach goals and achieve success previously thought impossible.” She added, “And while each therapist brings their own unique skills and experience, our collaborative team approach helps maximize our patients’ potential.”

Willick also believes that ongoing communication with parents is key for a child’s success. “Communication with parents, pediatricians and others on the child’s team will be a focus of staff professional development,” she explained. “Through effective communication, we can deepen a parent’s understanding of their child and coach them on at-home strategies to support the goals of therapy.”

“I’m thrilled to have KB on the leadership team,” said Warburg. “She is dedicated, driven and passionate about her work and she models these core POTS values every day. Her mission is to develop and supervise a cohesive staff with specialized training and experience which will help POTS continue to meet the unique and changing needs of our patients and our community.”
