What made you pursue OT, and where do you see yourself going: In high school, I shadowed many professionals in the rehabilitation field working in the school district. I ultimately loved OT for its holistic nature and the way they enabled children to better participate in their main occupation of learning.

What you enjoy most about the program: I enjoy the friends and connections I have made and being on the beautiful UofA campus.

Fun piece of information about yourself: I am a competitive curler and I have traveled across Alberta and the NWT competing. 

One piece of advice to first year students: Be flexible with your schedule. Many learning opportunities will come up, make the most of your short time here!!
