I am a third-year Master of Occupational Therapy student here at UW-Madison from St. Paul, Minnesota. In 2016, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology: Exercise and Movement Science from UW-Madison. After working in the Peace Corps in Belize for two years on community-led health projects, I came back to Madison to work towards my degree. I am now done with my classes and am currently working on completing my Level 2 fieldwork. My first fieldwork is working in the Ausderau lab in the Feeding Study and PCORI projects, and my second fieldwork will be in an inpatient hospital setting in Northern Wisconsin. After finishing fieldwork, I hope to find a way to combine my love for nature and the outdoors with my passion for occupational therapy by working towards broader inclusion in outdoor activities for people with disabilities. In my free time, I enjoy rollerblading, reading, backpacking, and exploring the beautiful states of Wisconsin and Minnesota.
