Clinicians choose to be clinicians to help fellow humans, to make the world a better place. So let’s roll up our sleeves, take a breath and get to it.
I look forward to sharing a weekly blog “From the Roots.”
As an occupational therapist, I was restless working within a system that appeared to be broken. I felt I would spontaneously combust if I had to tell one more client or family ”I know it’s not the ideal situation, but it’s the most your insurance company will approve.”
I witnessed healthy, motivated individuals receive less than average mobility equipment, denying them the opportunity to live their lives to the fullest.
I thought the status quo was worth changing. I earned my social work degree focusing on the community of people with disabilities, started a nonprofit as an empowerment model focusing on increasing access to good wheelchairs.
Now I am communicating with you to bring relevant and interesting weekly content to you. Information you can use immediately.
Let’s see what’s worth changing.
