What made you pursue OT, and where do you see yourself going: I knew I was interested in working in an area having to do with health and people. When I found out about OT I knew it was the right fit. I am passionate about mental health, and OT provides the opportunity to work in this area along with many others. I see myself having a future working as a mental health therapist, or in paediatrics. 

What you enjoy most about the program: I enjoy having clinicians come in to deliver lectures.

Fun piece of information about yourself: I love brunch!
