Hometown: San Diego, CA and Seoul, South Korea

Program: Entry-Level Professional Master’s, Class of 2022

What brought you to occupational therapy?
My sister is an OT so I’ve known about the profession for quite a while. I was inspired to pursue this profession when I volunteered at early intervention pediatric clinics and worked as a therapy technician at an outpatient hand therapy clinic. I love how OT beautifully merges science and arts to improve the quality of people’s lives!

What area of practice are you interested in?
Mostly pediatrics, but I am open to other areas as well.

Describe your background before coming to occupational therapy.
I graduated from UC Irvine with a Bachelor’s in Public Health Sciences. I also have some experience in interior design.

What are some of the occupations you engage in?
Dancing, cooking, meditating…more recently, taking care of my plants!

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?
Santorini, Greece… or Iceland!

You have your own late night talk show, who do you invite as your first guest?
I would love to have Steve Carrell as Michael Scott. I’m a huge fan of The Office.
