I am a vivacious return to school Graduate of Cabarrus College of Health Sciences earning an Associates of Science Degree in Occupational Therapy Assistant Program. My first investment in College was 4 years at Miami of Ohio focused in areas of Spanish and Marketing. The Practice of Occupational Therapy ( OT ) is my passion. Not often in life can we be excited to walk through the doors of my workplace with enthusiasm! Experiencing that everyday challenge of improving a patients functional life in a clinically stimulating environment. Teamwork in OT no matter the Practice setting be it Skilled Nursing Facility or School System or Inpatient Hospital setting , is rewarding because the Patient is shared by all OT , Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy and the Director from the Initial Evaluation to Discharge!
This excitement for Occupational Therapy is why I want to tutor students of OTA . OT is a beautiful and holistic care Practice with very special individuals gaining OTA degrees. We, current OTAs and future OTAs , all have a need to be challenged with problem solving treatment plans and goals. I truly believe OT should be a critical practice to include expansively in Plans of Care for a wider more holistic Medical and Behavioral Patient care in the US.
Whether you are studying for the Certification exam or OTA curriculum I would love to help you learn using my experience at the school system level , Inpatient hospital level , Skilled Nursing Facility level . I can bring a focus of study to Life using my real patients. I especially love my Old people, Seniors. They are wise and funny and add so much to my day.
Lets study and learn together about wonderful fulfilling life subject of OT!
