Linda L. Newman, MA, OTR/L

Linda L. Newman, OTR/L, is a sole proprietorship located in the Mendenhall Mall in Juneau, Alaska and has been in operation for 10 years. Linda’s occupational therapy business focuses on children ages 3+ through teens and provides a safe and comfortable atmosphere to conduct pediatric OT therapy services, outside of an institutional setting. Her DIR floor-time model is unique to her business – she is able to evaluate and provide age-appropriate service to her clients who experience sensory processing, developmental delays, and an autism spectrum disorder. Linda is also able to work with adult clients as they are referred to her.

Linda began working with the Alaska Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in Juneau to work on her business. About her time with her business advisor, Jennifer Adams, she shared, “Although I’m skilled, trained, and love what I do as an Occupational Therapist, it’s the administrative side that I needed support on.” Adding, “I am making progress, it has been a challenge working and balancing my family and home schedules. I’m totally grateful for the services provided by the SBDC.”

Her business advisor highlighted, “It’s been great working with Linda and helping her figure out and find tools that will help her business. Linda says she got a new sign on her door, she signed up with a new medical biller, she has a friend helping her tackle her business projects one-by-one so she won’t be overwhelmed and she is looking into hiring a part-time office assistant to help her stay on top of her billing and filing. I love seeing the difference in Linda’s business from last fall to this spring, it’s a huge improvement and you can tell the stress level is lower now that Linda is organized!”

The Alaska SBDC is proud to have been able to support Linda and help her evaluate and streamline her work processes so she can focus on what she loves: occupational therapy.
