What do you like about being an OT?

“What I love about my work is it allows me to provide children with the tools they need to build strong brains and bodies, loving and healthy relationships, and meaningful connections to life. I am deeply passionate about learning and researching the many ways we can help our children and ourselves thrive by providing our brains and bodies with the essential nutrition they need. I love working at SPOTS and feel grateful to work alongside other individuals that are just as passionate about helping our children succeed.”
