Nicki Ebel is the newest addition to our staff, and is actually returning to the Mountain Valley family after a 6 year hiatus. As an Occupational Therapist, Nicki has practiced in various continents around the world (Africa, Europe, North America). A graduate from the University of Cape Town in South Africa, she was born in Zimbabwe and lived there until she was 12 years old. If she couldn’t have been an OT, she definitely would have been a tour guide at an eco-tourism game reserve in Africa. It comes as no surprise that summer is her favorite time of the year, and she dreams of boating through the Norwegian Fjords in the wintry months. Together with her husband, David Ebel, she has 4 sons and a step-son. As an Occupational Therapist, she is passionate in her duty not only to facilitate recovery, and restore independence, but to support patients in the achievement of their rehabilitation goals and to live their lives to the fullest.
