About Anna B Galloway
Anna currently works as a Clinical Assistant Professor for The University of Florida’s Department of Occupational Therapy. She is a licensed and registered Occupational Therapist and a board certified Music Therapist. Anna completed her bachelor’s of science in music therapy at The University of Alabama and worked for multiple years in the greater Chicago area as a music therapist. As a music therapist, she worked as a member of multiple rehabilitation teams for stroke recovery, Alzheimer’s/dementia, TBI, SCI, and hospice care. She then received her master’s degree and her post-professional clinical doctorate in occupational therapy (OTD) at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). For her doctoral project, she created a continuing education course, Intentional Use of Music within the Occupational Therapy Scope of Practice, where she defined appropriate uses of music within the OT scope of practice and effective ways to increase collaboration with music therapists. This dissertation evaluated self-efficacy of each participant pre, post, and one-month after the implementation of this course. As an occupational therapist, Anna has worked extensively in acute care (cardiac, pulmonary, neuro, oncology), inpatient and outpatient mental and behavioral health, and end of life/palliative care. Anna is also a certified leader for Stanford’s Chronic Disease Self Management Program.
