What do you like about being an OT?

“I have many professional passions, including mentoring, supervising graduate OT students, and advocating for the OT pediatric profession. I enjoy working with children to foster self-esteem, confidence, and developmental growth, and I have an appreciation for each child’s individuality/character.”
