What brought you to occupational therapy?
Lot of researching & volunteering

What area of practice are you interested in?
I’m really interested in working with adults and elder adults (adult rehabilitation) and forensic and at-risk youth population (mental health).

What are some of the occupations you engage in?
I like to stay active, grab late-night donuts with friends, watch movies, listen to music, and laundry.

Tell us about your favorite memory from the program so far.
One of my favorite memories from the program is when I got to dip Rob Russow at the Boat Party.

What Hogwarts house would you be in and why?
Hufflepuff: hard work, patience, justice, and loyalty.

If you could choose anyone (living or dead) to be your mentor, who would you pick?
Jane Baumgarten. She is the most amazing OT I’ve ever had the privilege to study under. She has so much clinical knowledge and experience. She never ceases to amaze me with her skills.

What are two truths and a lie about yourself?
I lived in Poland before coming to America. I almost lost my sight at age seven. I love the Los Angeles Lakers.
