As I looked to toward a career path as an undergraduate,I explored and immersed myself in volunteer and work opportunities in medicine, psychology, and social work. However, nothing quite caught my interest until I shadowed an occupational therapist. My interest in occupational therapy grew as I tutored children with special needs and worked as a one-on-one aid for a child with autism in the school. I realized that becoming an occupational therapist would give me the tools needed to further assist children to reach their fullest potential. I was instantly drawn to the many lenses that occupational therapists take in understanding the strengths and challenges of the individual and the creative way that they collaborate with children and their families to work toward goals that are meaningful and relevant to their everyday lives.
My Eyas Landing
I enjoy most about Eyas Landing is the sense of community, collaboration, and support from all members of the team. I believe thatthis strong sense of communitydemonstrates the dedication and care for the children and families the team serves.
My goal is to complete my Occupational Therapy Doctorate in the Summer of 2020 and continue to advocate for culturally relevant care in clinical practice.
