Throughout high school, I had a huge interest in psychology, which inspired me to major in Neuroscience in college. I always knew I wanted to help people, and fell in love with clinical therapy and areas like occupational therapy and speech language pathology. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to nanny a child with autism for the summer, which confirmed my interest in therapy and studying neurological and developmental disorders. I am so glad to be here at Blue Bird Day to further my experience in pediatric therapy and strive toward my career goal of being a speech language pathologist.
My Blue Bird Day Goals
- Continue to grow and develop professional skills as a therapist.
- Work towards a master’s education in speech pathology.
