About Me

I have not lived my life in a strait from High School through College always wanting and knowing I wanted to be an Occupational Therapist. But rather, I like so many people have lived a messy, crazy, squiggly lined life that started in one direction then another then another. I was not the kid that got strait A's at any level of school. I commend those that did but I didn't. I did get some but I also got B's and even C's. I sometimes worked really hard and sometimes I skated through classes. Sometimes it was those A's that were the easy classes and those C's that were the ones that required more of my butt!

I have always been one of those people that found everything interesting. I was pretty good at most things I tried but not necessarily great at them. I was an Economics and Business Major for a while then I moved to Psychology. I really liked Child Psychology so I decided I would Major in that for a while. I thought maybe I would be a doctor so I started taking classes to that end until Chemistry and I crossed swords and I was handed my proverbial butt. I took Music classes because they were easy for me and I kept taking Math classes because I just liked Math. I considered Math as a major right up until they stopped using numbers and on that day I asked myself WHY I was taking Math classes... I didn't have a particularly good answer. I dropped the class and picked up another Music class. Eventually I had more units than the university found to be acceptable without an actual goal for graduation so they put there proverbial foot down and said "Pick one... Business or Music!" I needed one more class in Business than in Music so I went with Music. Note to self... Business probably would have been the better choice here.

It didn't really matter that much. I ended up about six months after graduation working for Warner Brothers in business anyway and I never did much with the Music degree until I became an Occupational Therapist. Funny how the world works isn't it. I worked for the WB for many years and most of that time as a Financial Analyst. Yeah, those Math skills did work out to be helpful.

Unfortunately, I ended up with a nasty tendinitis issue with both hands and arms and that ended my career in finance. But it opened the door for me to discover the rather wonderful world of Occupational Therapy.

I must say that the best part of OT is that there are so many different facets of this field that my tendency to get bored and want to do something else is inherently addressed. There are so many different people to help with so many different kinds of issues that just keeping up with them all is a huge challenge and I LOVE it!
