What made you pursue OT, and where do you see yourself going: I always knew I wanted to go into a profession where I could help people. Being involved in sports throughout my life got me interested in human movement. OT gives me the chance to be involved in both of those areas and much more.

What you enjoy most about the program: The best part about the OT program is the diversity of things we get to learn about. From mental health to assistive technology every class feels like something new and exciting.

Fun piece of information about yourself: I once drove a zamboni.

One piece of advice to first year students: Just breathe and stay present. The time is going to fly by, so enjoy the moment. It is all going to work out.
