All About Mrs. K
When I was a kid, I had this knack for finding animals in my neighborhood in need of help. From baby birds that had fallen out of the nest, to stray dogs running in the street, I brought them all home. In fact, I still do this today. I guess you could say I always wanted to help those in need. So in 1995, when I found myself not very inspired in the field of advertising, I decided to jump ship and forge a new path. After a lot of thought, I decided to take on the challenge of becoming an occupational therapist. Before I even applied to the program at Cleveland State University, I had to take one year of prerequisites. I found myself waiting tables at night so I could go to school during the day. I made it through and started my career as an occupational therapist in 2001. I have been practicing ever since. Over the years, my career has evolved into working primarily with students 3-22 years old in the public schools. During the pandemic, I created fine motor coordination classes and taught these virtually to children of all different abilities. This idea has evolved into creating a podcast, The OT Corner with Mrs. K. I am excited to share with you information on development and interviews with childhood professionals.
