My road in life took a while to figure out.
I had to move away from home to go to the university that had the degree I was seeking.
I was married and then had a child during my college years.
I had to work for free for 6 months during my internship and then had to work at night and the weekends to pay for living expenses.
I injured my knee in college and had to search for a non-invasive way to heal it.
Keep following my journey

Helping People

Day to Day

I see my first of 5-6 patients at 9:00 am. I spend between 30-and 60 minutes with them in their place of residence. I will then provide specific Occupational Therapy principles to help them to achieve the mutually agreed upon goals, in hopes of maximizing their independence at home. An example would be to help a person suffering from the effects of a stroke, to learn to perform their daily activities in adaptive ways, as well as work with functional use of the impaired arm.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for professionals

You might have to relocate out of the Bay Area to get good work. Join the Association of California if you're an OT. They encourage you to join this organization to stay on top of everything to continue to be an OT.
