I have had the privilege of being able to work in a variety of settings in the OT field, which has allowed me to gain diverse knowledge and experience. I have a strong background and love for orthopedics and have been referred to by colleagues as "the body architect" due to my knowledge and understanding of musculoskeletal anatomy and kinesiology. Prior to entering the OT field I taught middle and high school sciences, which allowed me to gain experience in finding ways to relay information to students with various learning styles, as well as gain the passion to help students achieve their goals. As someone who has always struggled with learning disabilities, I have devised study habits and tricks that seemed to be helpful not only to my students, but also to me when I was preparing to take the NBCOT exam. I am confident with my background and passion to help people that I will be able to help you achieve your goal of passing the NBCOT exam!
