Name the moment that inspired you to take your career path.
I was inspired to become an occupational therapy practitioner during the summer of 2013 when I assisted the Eyas Landing summer campers to explore their senses and learn new skills through play.
What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment?
My greatest accomplishment was earning a full ride scholarship for my undergraduate degree. I could have never done it without the support of my family and my hometown community.
What do you love most about working at Eyas Landing?
I love the company culture and how my coworkers always are willing to lend a helping hand and guidance.
How has the supervision at Eyas Landing supported your professional growth?
Receiving weekly supervision helps me to become the best occupational therapy practitioner by reviewing my week and brainstorming creative ways to help my clients be successful during our sessions and their everyday activities.
Is there anything else you’d like to add about yourself?
I love to hike, take yoga classes, and explore the city of Chicago!
