What are you most passionate about professionally? Personally?
Professionally, and personally, I am in love with hippotherapy.
I have been horse riding my whole life, and want to specialize in performing occupational therapy the
client is on the horse to help improve their skills.
What would you do even if you didnʼt get paid to do?
My goal is to be a volunteer photographer for Flashes of Hope, and take photo kids with cancer, and their family, so everyone has the memorable images.
What are you surprisingly good at?
I am surprisingly good at photography. I would love to be a photographer as a job.
Whatʼs the biggest proof that youʼre good at what you do?
I graduated with a minor in photography, and have worked for
many professional photoshoots. He kept telling me to drop my psychology major (which I would never do since I love OT so much!),
since he wants me to be a professional photographer full-time. (Maybe Iʼll try it when I retire from OT).
How long have you been working in your field?
I started at Galvin Therapy in May, and will be here for about a year and a half before I go to graduate school to get my occupational therapy doctorate.
What are you complimented on most in your work?
My organization. I love to have everything very neat and pinned to the point.
Whatʼs your biggest accomplishment professionally?
I graduated from The University of Kentucky with my Bachelorʼs in Psychology minor in Photography, as Summa Cum Laude. Also, I graduated a year early.
How does your education connect to your professional career? What about personally?
Psychology is a major part of OT and I loved every class. For my personal experience, I had brain surgery six years ago, and have overcome so much. I want to help be as independent and successful as possible.
What problems do you consistently solve for your clients?
Every day we work on making sure we can be as happy as possible
While learning as much as possible in a fun way.
