Why did you choose a career in the Occupational Therapy industry?

In search of a career whereby I could make a difference, I initially started studying law and psychology. Unsatisfied and looking to be more hands on with those I was seeking to help, I scoured course guides before discovering OT. Attracted to the prospect of supporting clients face-to-face and thinking outside the box, I love that no day nor client is the same. I am especially grateful for the unlimited opportunities to learn new skills and the various areas of specialty a career in OT offers!

What is the best part of your job?

Meeting people from all walks of life and having the opportunity to build a relationship with them – whether they’re a client, their broader support network or industry peers. It’s a real privilege to be a small part of someone’s life, learn from their lived experiences and help them achieve their goals. I especially like that Occupational Therapy looks beyond the physical and allows us to be a real partner, set unique goals and implement individual intervention plans to support people.
