I majored in Exercise Science at Concordia University Chicago with the intention of applying to PT school. However, during my college career, I found a passion working with children instead. This drifted my aspiration of becoming a physical therapist because I found myself enjoying educating children and keeping them physically active. My interest then began working at recreational facilities, specifically advocating to improve children’s confidence and develop their abilities. My drive to work with children led me to serve as a volunteer at a pediatric clinic; with this experience I found myself reconsidering my desire to apply to a professional licensing program. I then was encouraged to do research on pediatric centers for Therapeutic Assistant (TA) positions. That is when I came across Eyas Landing. After reading about their mission statement, provided programs, and qualified therapists, I knew Eyas Landing was the right fit for me. Being a TA will provide me with the opportunity to play an important role in children’s lives, as well as collaborate with various pediatric specialists/therapists. I am excited to be part of the Eyas Landing team!
My professional goals are to continue my education in this field and receive my certification as a Registered Behavioral Technician.
As I continue to build my experience, I plan to go back to school for a Master’s in Child Development or an AAS degree in Occupational Therapy Assistant.
