Hey! My name is Ariel Mazel-Gee and I'm from Berkeley, California. I graduated from Stanford University with a major in Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity and a minor in Drama. I chose to pursue occupational therapy because I wanted to wake up every morning knowing that I was making a positive impact. I was drawn to the holistic and multi-disciplinary nature of the profession, and loved the idea of empowering people to help themselves. I'm especially interested in the potential we have as occupational therapists to design truly creative and innovative interventions that help people live healthy and fulfilling lives. Some of my favorite occupations include singing, acting, dancing, writing, making jewelry, hiking, traveling, and helping young adults express themselves through all of the above activities!
