Rebecca Gillett, MS OTR/L
Rebecca was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at age 26. Eighteen years later – after hundreds of injections, 14 surgeries and becoming a licensed occupational therapist – she is happy to be working at the Arthritis Foundation to educate and raise awareness about what it's like living with arthritis.
Julie was diagnosed with arthritis at 7 years old. Like Rebecca, she has been living with arthritis for 18 years. Julie talks about the ups and downs, including her worst days when she needed an ambulatory wheelchair, to her most resilient ones when she biked 525 miles down the California coast. Julie loves working at the Arthritis Foundation and elevating the patient voice.
