It is with heavy hearts that we announce the tragic loss of a fellow South Carolina OT and dedicated SCOTA member. Andrea Bennett Freeman was a beloved Dorchester District 2 practitioner that is described by friends as “the best OT I have ever met” and “an amazing person with a larger than life personality!” Andrea and her husband leave behind three daughters. Please keep her family in your prayers as they endure this heartbreaking tragedy.
