AOTA INSPIRE 2024 Presenters, What Inspires You?

“As a school-based therapist, I was inspired by students, their families, and my talented team members. Because of their inspiration, I returned to school and earned a post-professional OTD. Inspired by my cohort and professors, I later embarked on a career in research and academia, where I am inspired daily by curious students who are thirsty for knowledge.

As a lifelong learner, I like to think that I am more open-minded and can recognize that opportunities for inspiration are everywhere!”

SESSION TITLE: Caseload to Workload in School-Based Practice: Practical Strategies for Success

“AOTA INSPIRE provides an equitable ‘seat at the table’ where everyone gets the chance to present what they are passionate about. So what keeps me going is the need for authentic representation in the spaces of research and education, and conference is my platform.”

SESSION TITLE: The Invisible Diversity of the Arab Client: Implications to OT Practice

“I feel it is such a privilege to be able to spend time with clients at the domestic violence shelter. They allow me to come into their space where we can talk, share, explore, and take steps forward. It brings me back to the roots of OT building on our foundations in mental health to support these women to participate in their roles, build healthy routines, and find purpose and meaning in their lives.”
