“After undergoing rehab for several sports-related injuries as a child/teenager, I decided early in high school that I wanted to be a therapist. I chose occupational therapy because I was intrigued by the endless possibilities for helping people return to functional independence. One of my favorite aspects of being a therapist is the opportunity to be creative in helping patients meet their functional goals through adapting the task, tools, and/or environment. Hand therapy has always been my favorite specialty area because the hand is such an important part of human function, and I enjoy seeing patients become an active participant in his/her recovery. It is so rewarding to follow patients’ progression through the treatment process and to see their return to normal daily activities."
