My Story

I started off college as a chemistry student. I realized I didn’t want to continue a career as a chemist because I’ve always found joy in helping people out physically and mentally. I decided to switch to psychology to become a clinical psychologist; however, one of my psych professors kept mentioning how his past students became Occupational Therapists. I did my research on this specific field and instantly knew it was the right thing for me. From working at my aunt’s daycare center to also currently being a physical therapy aide at another clinic, I’ve been gaining the experience I need in order to succeed as an OT. Seeing growth in others motivates me to further expand my knowledge and apply it in various healthcare settings!
