What would you consider to be the greatest accomplishment of your career so far? What are your goals for the future?
I am proud to say that three of my books have been endorsed by Dr. Temple Grandin and Dr. Lucy Jane Miller, amazing leaders in their respective fields. I am honored that my books have been featured on news outlets such as Real Simple, Inc. Magazine, and Psych Central. My goal for the future is to continue to push myself to get my books out there. And maybe to do professional development for therapists – it’s a matter of finding the time!
What is the greatest challenge you face as an OT professional? How are you working to overcome it?
It’s definitely finding the time to work on marketing my books, further developing professional development around them, providing my all at my current job, and being the best mom and wife that I can be. There aren’t enough hours in the day! In terms of overcoming that, I think it’s a matter of continuing to balance my time the best that I can.
