    Biography

    As an occupational therapy educator, I aim to develop students’ understanding of professional academic knowledge, helping them to experience occupational therapy through active engagement activities, and teaching them to become a positive voice in the health care field.  I also aim to cultivate students’ enthusiasm for the profession and their ability to deliver meaningful and purposeful patient care while providing therapeutic interventions that are based on evidence.   In addition to my academic responsibilities, I remain active as an occupational therapy practitioner to ensure current practice principles.
