Dr. Randall S. Watkins, DrPH, MS, OTR/L, ATC, NSCA-CPT
Hello and welcome to Sittercise, by way of Maintaining Life Health & Fitness, LLC. My name is Randall Watkins and I am the Vice President (VP) and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Maintaining Life Health & Fitness. Here is a brief synopsis of who I am from a professional perspective. I currently possess a Doctoral degree in public health (DrPH), focusing on health advocacy and leadership, Master’s degree in occupational therapy (OT) and I have two Bachelor’s degrees in exercise science and athletic training, as well as a minor in business administration. Therefore, I am a registered and licensed occupational therapist, a certified athletic trainer (ATC), as well as a certified personal trainer through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). I have owned a private outpatient physical rehabilitation clinic, worked in a variety of healthcare environments (e.g. hospital, outpatient, and homecare), and have collaborated with many healthcare professionals in establishing a program for those individuals who suffer from obesity, as well as addressing the older adult population in a post-acute home environment. I have had the pleasure of working with clients/patients from pediatric to geriatric in a variety of health care settings. I am a published author and the title of my book is the Human Mechanic A Call For A Paradigm Shift. I teach two health courses, “Health care in the US” and “Wellness in a Diverse Society”.
