As an undergraduate student at Stony Brook University, Shantel Isaac was an active member of the Pre-OT Society. Shantal, determined to learn more about occupational therapy, took advantage of opportunities to volunteer and intern in clinical settings before beginning her graduate work at NYU Steinhardt.

This October, Shantel Isaac returned to Stony Brook to share her experience at NYU with a room full of future occupational therapy students. Shantel described how her clinical exposure has culminated into an understanding of how theory meets application. “At NYU, when I learn certain theories and applications, I can remember those same theories and applications being used in different clinical settings,” Shantel wrote in an email after the event.

After the event, Shantel lingered to discuss graduate life at NYU Steinhardt. “I encouraged them to apply!” she said.
