After many years as a fieldwork educator, I am excited to bring my love of OT to students in the academic setting. Hands on learning and experiential learning is my preferred mechanism for teaching. Student engagement is valuable to me. I know OT students found their way to this program because of their interest in the field, and I value the varied skills and backgrounds our students bring! The next group of OT practitioners coming out of Worcester State will truly make the lives of their patients better.
