Before entering the Northern Arizona University doctoral program in occupational therapy I was following a career path in wildlife biology. My former career path allowed me to come in contact with communities living in remote, sensitive areas, without access to health care. The shocking disparities I witnessed led me to my current endeavors in occupational therapy. Social barriers and lack of resources often interfere with the independence of sensitive populations and present issues of occupational injustice. I joined the LEND program as a fellow with the hopes of developing skills to address health disparities, specifically in the realm of maternal child health.
