What inspired you to become an Occupational Therapist?
I grew up always wanting to work within the disability field so when I found OT, I knew it was perfect for me. I love that I have the ability to help so many people of so many different ages and so many different circumstances. I love the versatility this profession has and the many avenues that I can go down throughout my career.
Who do you like to work with?
I love that my job allows me to work with people of all ages across the lifespan. I have had experience working with children, all the way through to geriatric patients and I love them all for different reasons. I have definitely found my passion in paediatrics. I love watching my clients achieve their goals across the lifespan as they move through milestones such as starting school.
My greatest accomplishment would be completing almost two years of my Occupational Therapy degree during a global pandemic. It wasn’t easy and at times it was really hard completing such a practical degree online, but we were able to share some amazing memories together as a cohort.
Favourite OT Games:
I love gross motor activities such as using the swings or rock-climbing walls. I also love making obstacle courses with my clients!
