What are you most passionate about professionally?
I am most passionate about problem solving and finding strategies that work for children and their families. I really enjoy getting feedback from parents to hear that I helped make a difference in their child’s life. I also strive to create a trusting and therapeutic relationship between the children I work with and their families.
How long have you been working in your field?
I have been working as an occupational therapist for just over 2 years. I was a student at Galvin Therapy Center before I got hired on full-time which made starting my first job in my field much more comfortable and exciting.
How does your education connect to your professional career? What about personal experiences?
I have always wanted to work with kids – my education, professional experiences and personal experiences have definitely helped me obtain my current job in pediatrics.
What are you complimented on most in your work?
I have much experience in dealing with children with difficult behaviors – I would say this is one thing I am complimented on in my work.
