OT Specialty –  or favorite OT challenge
I love all challenges. They spark new and creative strategies as part of my life-long learning.

When and how did you decide to become an OT, or were you born knowing?
My Aunt inspired me to become an Occupational Therapist at a very young age. I loved that she was able to incorporate a diverse career while helping others recover.

If you could offer one tip to people, based on your experiences as an OT, what would it be?
Never leave a home without making a difference in your patient’s day – prompting a laugh or at least a smile!
