Occupational Therapist

I love pretend play where the kids are able to engage by pretending they’re ninjas or teachers or princesses or whatever.

When did you first know you wanted to pursue a career in therapy? Honestly, therapy came literally out of nowhere for me. I wanted to be a journalist, and suddenly I didn’t have peace about pursuing journalism. Right around the same time I started thinking about therapy (which I attribute to God because those are not the same things) I solidified my desire to be an OT after working at a summer camp for kids with disabilities. I LOVED that experience!

Who inspires you in your profession? Oh wow, so many! I have been blessed with so many incredible mentors throughout OT school. I probably should give a shout out to my professor Dr. Khosla who always believed in me and encouraged me to think outside the bounds of the clinic walls. Also, to my research mentor Dr. Jackson, who always pushed us not to just be “good” OTs but “great” OTs. I could list more!

What is your favorite way to engage with kids? Play! It really is what makes pediatric therapy so special. I especially love pretend play where the kids are able to engage by pretending they’re ninjas or teachers or princesses or whatever. When kids buy into a story, therapy is soooo fun!

Tell us about a challenge that you watched a child overcome. This story actually happened before OT. I had the privilege of volunteering at a refugee camp overseas. I got to work with a little girl who could no longer walk and was quite weak. She didn’t get a lot of interaction with the other kids in the camp but I remember working with her and some of the other volunteers to help her participate in a game of jump rope. She couldn’t jump but she could turn the rope! As a result, she was able to participate in an age appropriate activity with her peers. Though I wasn’t an OT yet, this story reminds me of what OT is all about- helping people live full lives by participating in meaningful activities.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work? Basically, any combo of food, friends, music, and dance is a jackpot for me! I love cooking meals with friends and dancing around the kitchen. I also like to read, run, watch plays or musicals, drink coffee, write, play piano, and swing dance!
