What inspired you to become an OT?
I have always been interested in helping people. When I was in high school I came across the occupational therapy profession and immediately loved it. I loved the idea of being able to work with, support and make a difference in the lives people and their families.
Who do you like to work with?
Throughout my degree, I had the opportunity to work with a wide range of people with different diagnoses, disabilities and conditions. However, my first ever placement was paediatrics and since then I have been passionate about working with children, I think it is very rewarding to see and foster a child’s growth and progress throughout their life.
My greatest accomplishment is completing my Occupational Therapy degree and finding a career that I am passionate about.

I love movement games that involve the slide, swing, balance beam and rock-climbing wall.
I enjoy sports, in particular playing soccer. I enjoy spending time relaxing at the beach and being surrounded by my friends and family.
