Jital Patel, OTR/L, CFPS

Jital Patel is an Occupational Therapist and a Certified Falls Prevention Specialist (CFPS) with 10 years of healthcare experience. She is the owner and Clinical Director of Coastal Occupational Therapy.
Jital earned her Master’s in Occupational Therapy from New York Institute of Technology: College of Health Sciences, in 2012. Prior to pursuing her passion as an OT, Jital had obtained a Bachelors in Economics degree from Rutgers University and worked as a portfolio manager with multiple financial banks in New York for 8+ years.
Her resume spans from working in various therapy settings including home health, inpatient hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and outpatient centers in NY, NJ, CA, and now in Florida.
Through her experience, Jital realized a gap in patients’ care when transitioning between settings, often not receiving the quality and quantity of services they deserved to maintain a healthy and independent life. As a preventative therapy service, Jital started Coastal Occupational Therapy for the purpose of serving Brevard County’s elder population with comprehensive therapy services brought right to their doorstep. Jital understands the complex and dynamic interactions between people, their environments, and the activities they need to accomplish in their daily lives. She recognizes that the path to a person’s health and well-being is intricately linked to participating in daily occupations.
Outside of work, Jital enjoys spending time family and loves traveling the world – some of her expeditions have been to Morocco, Scotland, London, Spain, India, Costa Rica, Australia, Tasmania, Indonesia..just to name a few.
