It wasn’t too long ago that I felt completely uninspired working as an occupational therapist. I was just going through the motions Monday to Friday to get a pay check at the end of the week.

My soul craved more. More purpose. More passion. More impact.

So, I set out on a journey to learn more about our profession and the possibilities within it. After reconnecting with the roots of occupational therapy, deep heart-led conversations with OT living legends and my own inner work, I realised that the only thing keeping me stuck and stagnant in my career was my own thoughts around what I believed was possible.

I realised that as an OT I can work with anyone at any age or stage on their life’s journey to help them to do what they need and want to do. The possibilities are endless. My meaningful work was here in this space – Occupational Therapy. 

My hope is that if you are on a similar journey – if you feel jaded, disillusioned, burnt-out or lost –that Finding Me In OT instils you with a sense of hope and injects you with the courage to follow your dreams to create the change you seek in the world – one occupation at a time.
