Name & PDC Position:
 Erin Holman, Calgary Rep

Hometown: Rimbey, AB

Undergraduate Degree: Bachelor of Arts in Recreation, Sports, and Tourism (focus on Recreation Therapy)

What made you pursue OT, and where do you see yourself going: It sounds cliche, butI pursued OT because I love working with people and I love how it feels when I can help someone.  I was working as a recreation therapist for about a year and a half, but I wanted to go back to school because I was always more passionate about OT.

What you enjoy most about the program: I enjoy being at the Calgary campus and having a really close relationship with all of my classmates.

Fun piece of information about yourself: I love to run! I try to do at least 1 half marathon each year.

One piece of advice to first year students: DON’T STRESS ABOUT OSCEs! They are really not that bad. If you put the practice time in, you will succeed.
