Dr. Dawnn Thomas

Assistant Professor of Occupational Therapy

Why I Teach

Teaching allows me the ability to keep current and up-to-date with the latest news in occupational therapy, the time to continue to practice to keep up with my clinical skills, to share my knowledge and experience with aspiring occupational therapists, and to advocate for the wonderful profession!

Professional Activities

I am currently an Assistant Professor for the Occupational Therapy program at Wesley College for the first OT program in the state of Delaware. I have a strong background in the geriatric population, serving as the rehab director for different skilled nursing facilities in Connecticut and Delaware. I also worked in the home health population and dedicated myself to providing quality care to patients of varying ages in their own home environment. I’ve served as a clinical instructor for fieldwork for both Occupational Therapy and Occupational Therapy Assistant students from Quinnipiac University, Bay Path College, Sacred Heart University, Goodwin College, Lincoln College, and Manchester Community College. I have adjunct teaching experience with Sacred Heart University. I continue to practice in various skilled nursing facilities and acute hospitals in lower Delaware.

I began my career after receiving my baccalaureate degree in health sciences and psychology from State University of New York at Stony Brook. I continued to achieve my Master of Science in Occupational Therapy at State University of New York at Stony Brook and my clinical doctorate from Chatham University.
