Joy Facella-Ervolini has completed her Doctorate of Occupational Therapy at the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions (IHP). During her education,
she worked as a teaching and research assistant, and as a student clinician in various settings. Her training included clinical rotations at the California Rehabilitation Institute in
inpatient rehabilitation and at Newton-Wellesley Hospital in outpatient hand therapy. Joy served as the Fundraising Chair for the Student Occupational Therapy Association and the Vice President of the Best Buddies Chapter at the IHP. Her doctoral research focused on the effects of home health occupational therapy on mood and activity participation in adults with low vision. Dr. Facella-Ervolini will present her research next year at the International Society for Low Vision Research and Rehabilitation. Joy is very much looking forward to joining the field as an OT! She has recently accepted a position at MGH and is currently working on the inpatient neurology unit. Joy is the daughter of Dr. Carol Facella, a lifelong Winthrop resident.
