Philosophy of Care

I started my path to occupational therapy as a senior in high school because I wanted to help people during difficult times in their life. I stayed on my long path because the career of occupational therapy allowed me to do more than just help people. It allowed me to teach individuals new, safe, and efficient ways to do the activities they want and need to do, providing them purpose and improving their quality of life.
