Personal Statement

Why Eugenia loves occupational therapy…

“I love occupational therapy because it is practical yet creative, holistic and fun. In the field of OT, we study the art of living. We look for ways to restore or compensate for problems that may be interfering with our life. We address the physical body, mind, emotional and spiritual being to promote healing and participation in meaningful life roles. OT helps us to find a sense of purpose that empowers us and brings us joy.”
