What brought you to occupational therapy?
I have had a love and special care for the older adult population since I was a little girl, and I hope to serve this community as an Occupational Therapist!

What area of practice are you interested in?
Geriatrics, home health, and outpatient rehab… but I can’t wait to explore all of the areas!

What are some of the occupations you engage in?
My favorite activities are rollerblading at Huntington Beach, coffee shop hopping, & thrifting.

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?
Half of my family is from Egypt, and the other half of my family is from Holland. I would love to travel to those places to re-visit my family and meet some other members of my family I’ve never met!

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard?
Proverbs 3:3-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge, and He will make straight your paths.”
