What do you enjoy most about teaching at Allen College?
I really enjoy the close relationships in the MS in OT program and throughout the college with both faculty and students. I am a lifelong learner and love the challenges of acquiring and creating new learning techniques, activities, and experiences that assist students in acquiring knowledge and concepts. It is amazing to witness students transition their knowledge into application during fieldwork.
