Helping others is what feeds my soul…
Ever since I can remember, helping people was my purpose in life and something that felt natural. It was through my life’s experiences that opened the door that led me to my true calling, a career in Occupational Therapy.
Originally I was attending school to become an interior designer, up until my grandfather suffered a severe stroke. I packed up my bags and drove up to help my grandmother get situated and comfortable with their new “normal.” I was the primary caretaker of my grandfather due to the age of my grandmother. This involved sitting through his occupational therapy sessions. It was there I began seeing the improvements my grandfather was making. He had limited motion, but with the use of his adaptive equipment he was able to accomplish some of his daily routine tasks. This was amazing and a true gift.
I followed my heart and attended the occupational therapy program at Pacific University, graduating in 1988. 30 years later and my desire to help others is stronger then ever. I am so excited for you to experience my website. My hope for you is that you come to my site with challenges and leave with ways to overcome them.
