While volunteering at the VA in preparation to apply to OT school I met an inspiring OT, Julia. She showed me how to interact with clients, build rapport, and think outside the box. Before I started I was still on the fence to whether I wanted to pursue a career in OT, but Julia’s passion, ability to work with clients, and calm demeanor solidified my decision. She takes time out of her day to put the clients first.
