Mona experienced a below-knee amputation in her 20’s. With a degree in social work, she has a variety of experience working with children, mental health, home health, and then having a private practice for a couple of years. When she was visiting with her prosthetist, she was asked if she had any interest in pursuing social work within the prosthetic field. With her background, she felt like it would be a perfect fit.
She works with patients from a psychosocial perspective during their amputation and prosthetic experience, helping to provide emotional and physical support and improve outcomes. In her role as a Community Care Coordinator and with her background as a patient, volunteer, and social worker, she helps heal the mind, heart, and body and stand beside patients as they work through their emotional and physical journeys.
