What made you pursue OT, and where do you see yourself going: I wanted to pursue OT after an information session held at my university. I loved the idea of being able to talk with people, hear their stories and fit their therapy to their personal lives. I still don’t know for sure where i’ll end up working but, I’m excited to find out!

What you enjoy most about the program: What I enjoy about the program is the people! Whether it’s the students in the program or the staff around Corbett, there is a sense of community and a great support system throughout the program.

Fun piece of information about yourself: I love Disney movies, going to the cat cafe on Whyte Ave and karaoke! .

One piece of advice to first year students: My advise to the first years is to know the value of self care. It is easy to get swept up in all the things you have to do for school but, it’s even more important to take time for yourself.
