Professional Goals

  1. My professional goal is returning back to school to receive my Doctorate Degree in Occupational Therapy. I want to continue practicing in Pediatrics.

My Story

I decided to become a therapist because I wanted to help others. Working with children was a very easy decision for me because I truly enjoy the interaction with them and seeing their progress and growth. Each child is unique in their own way. I love being part of their story and success. Creating relationships with clients and their families has also been a number one priority for me as a therapist.

My Eyas Landing

From my first Zoom interview, the staff was so welcoming and reassuring. Once I visited in-person, the clinic and staff was so friendly and truly made me feel welcomed. Within the first five minutes of my interview, I had the opportunity to observe and play with some kiddos. It was such an amazing experience to be so hands on during the interview process. The entire clinic was welcoming and really made me feel accepted for being a new graduate.

My Advocacy

Advocating for kiddos and their families to receive the best POC and carry over for home programming.
