My Story

A tale as old as time… or as old as COVID. In 2020, I lost my job within the hotel industry. After working in the hospitality sector for over 10 years, I had lost my passion and zest for it. COVID had a silver lining for me, allowing me the time to take care of my mental well being and find out what my passion was. I took a teaching position at a preschool and that introduced me to Occupational Therapy. After further research, I believed I found a career I could be passionate about again and decided to start the process of applying to grad school. I am excited to be at Blue Bird Day where I can be in a supportive learning environment and get more clarity on the therapy field.
