I am a third year student in the Occupational Therapy Program at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. I will graduate in May 2020 with my doctorate and plan to begin my career in inpatient rehabilitation and/or behavioral health in the Des Moines area. My overall career goal is to start my own contracting company to develop behavioral health programming in under served areas of the state and decrease the stigma associated with mental illness.
