NOTA's Lobbyist

Cheryl Frickel- [email protected]


NOTA welcomes Cheryl Frickel as the NOTA Registered Lobbyist.

 Cheryl Frickel recently started as Lobbyist in January 2017. Formerly, Cheryl assisted Steve Bowen, previous NOTA lobbyist, with the creation of NOTA Policy and Advocacy Committee (NOTAPAC) to expand the occupational therapy presence in Nebraska and increase the occupational therapy students’ involvement in policy and advocacy. Cheryl attends the Board of OT meetings in Lincoln and communicates with the state Senators to ensure the occupational therapy practice is protected. She aims to advocate for the people in Nebraska to receive health care and occupational therapy skilled services needed by following bills, contacting Senators, and reaching out to practitioners through NOTAPAC and social media. Supporting Cheryl’s efforts are OT students and practitioners on the committee that also play integral roles in assisting her with lobbying. Outside of lobbyist, Cheryl is an OT for CHI at Immanuel Hospital and Immanuel Fontenlle Home.
