Nikah Hart (bottom left) graduated from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in 2009 with a Masters of Occupational Therapy. She attended the University of North Texas and received an undergraduate degree in Human Development and Family Studies, with a minor in business, in 2003.
Nikah is originally from Amarillo, Texas. Her love for Occupational Therapy began at her family owned business, a developmental gymnastics center. She had the opportunity to work with children of differing abilities. This confirmed her desire to pursue a career helping others achieve their maximum potential physically, emotionally and educationally. Occupational therapy was a perfect fit.
Nikah has worked with a variety of populations including geriatrics, adults with neurological conditions, and pediatrics in various settings. Nikah joined Achieve Pediatric Therapy and Rehab in Cedar Park in 2013. Now back in Lubbock, she is excited to join Achieve as co-director providing Lubbock children the same quality of care Achieve offers in Cedar Park. Nikah also holds a position as recurrent faculty member at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Occupational Therapy.
She is married to Ben Hart since 2006. They have two girls, Brynn and Molly. Nikah and her family enjoy the lake, swimming, and all Red Raider sporting events.
Susan, (bottom right) an Occupational Therapist, is a Co-Director of Achieve Pediatric Therapy & Rehab. She graduated from Texas Tech Health Sciences Center in 2008 with her Masters in Occupational Therapy. In graduate school, she met two great friends that founded Achieve and 9 years later, the opportunity landed for Susan to join their awesome team. Susan chose OT because she wanted to feel a connection with her patients and know she was making a difference in the lives of others. The more she learned about OT, the more she knew she was pursuing the perfect career path. Since graduating from OT school, Susan has worked in a variety of settings such as home health, acute care, inpatient rehab, skilled nursing, school settings, and outpatient pediatrics, gaining wonderful experience from each one!
Susan loves all aspects of occupational therapy and every setting she has been in. She loves helping others and empowering them on their journeys to discover their strengths. The opportunity to help people gain confidence and to achieve success is incredibly rewarding to Susan.
Susan is married to Michael, a teacher and coach at Monterey High School. They have a son, Beckham, who will be 2 in August. On the weekends you can find Susan and her family at their happy place……a sporting event! Susan is an avid Texas Tech Fan! Wreck 'Em!
