Haley Patella, Receptionist

FOCUS Therapy


Haley Patella has been a receptionist at FOCUS Therapy in Fort Myers since 2023. FOCUS is a premier provider of speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and ABA therapy to children with delays and disabilities in Southwest Florida.

A Massachusetts native, Haley majored in computer science at High Point University in North Carolina before moving to Southwest Florida – drawn to the area’s beautiful beaches and sunsets, as well as professional opportunities. She speaks both English and intermediate Spanish, and enjoys reading, taking walks, coloring, and cuddling with her cat in her spare time.

“I love that at FOCUS everybody works as a team,” she said. “Every person, every role here is equally important.”
