Have a question for Alexis?

My Story

I decided that I wanted to pursue physical or occupational therapy after shadowing in an orthopedic center in high school. From the stories of improvement happily relayed to me by the patients, I saw the value of the work and a job that I could become passionate about. After becoming a research assistant for an adapted physical education lab in college, I quickly decided I wanted to become an Occupational Therapist and work to improve institutions that are not adapted to fit the needs of every student.

My Eyas Landing

I am excited to start as a Therapeutic Assistant for Eyas Landing this upcoming week!

My Professional Goals

  1. I want to attend graduate school and get my masters or doctorate degree in occupational therapy. I would love to become a pediatric occupational therapist!
