My Story

I knew I always wanted to work in healthcare going into undergrad, so I started my degree in human biology. I explored the post-profession careers in healthcare and came across occupational therapy. I did a deep dive into the profession and ended up observing a family friend who is a school occupational therapist. I absolutely loved everything about it! I observed a few more practice areas and decided this was the career for me! My fieldwork at a preschool in the western suburbs solidified that I was destined for pediatrics. And now here I am today!
