What brought you to occupational therapy?
I always loved psychology and physiology and OT seemed to put these two things together in a really useful way.
What area of practice are you interested in?
Describe your background before coming to occupational therapy.
I was a Psych major at Chapman University. At Chapman, I was a lab assistant for research being done on maternal and baby bonding. I also worked part time as a personal care assistant for a woman with spinal muscular atrophy.
If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?
I would love to visit Machu Picchu because it is such a testament to the capabilities humans have. But also, it’s just plain beautiful!
How do you want to be remembered?
I want to be remembered as someone who made other people happy through humor and compassion.
