Track: Advanced Clinical Practice
In my OTD, I focused on assisting veterans in their reintegration following combat. I was able to individualize my coursework through two independent study electives: one in qualitative interviewing to help me assess barriers to engagement in rehabilitation and support services, and the other in entrepreneurship through the USC Marshall School of Business to guide me in creating a community based, non-profit run by the very population I aimed to serve — combat veterans. Through my OTD, I founded Xtreme Sports 4 Veterans Incorporated and I was able to impact not only the culture of veteran support in my community, but also the lives of many combat veterans and their family members in Montana.
