MY JOURNEY IN HEALTHCARE.
Reading anatomy books at 5 years old. 📕Studying the human body for fun as a kid for hours on end. OBSESSED WITH HOUSE. Fascinated with chemistry and biology in college. “Go to med school!” My dad told me. My abuelo was an anesthesiologist in Cuba after all.
But deep down I wanted to pursue a career in dance because it was also my passion and I knew I had to do that while I was young. Audition after audition, I failed to get in every BA dance program. I loved medicine so much, but also had an artistic side that was burning inside me. Someone told me about occupational therapy and it literally seemed like the perfect fit of creativity and science.
And occupational therapy has been my journey since 2011. I thought I’d just always treat in a hospital or clinic being one-on-one with patients for the rest of my career. I went through years of burnout, confusion, and was just kind of lost. I realized almost a year ago that maybe I’m meant for a different, completely non-traditional route in OT. Maybe going through all the burnout, breakdowns in the bathroom, injustice, and anxiety is the catalyst to entrepreneurship in where I can be a part of the change in healthcare. And now it’s finally time to stop saying maybe and GO FOR IT ⚡️
This summer and fall things for us are gonna get moving. Look out for continuing education courses, meet and greets, speaking events, and some BIG surprises ☺️ I gotta end this rant with this: don’t let small minds convince you that your dreams are too big. 👊 and PS custom jacket by @bybornandmade 💕
Finished 2 years of the best chapter of my life with these guys!

[ON THE PODCAST] 🎧
On the podcast today, we talk to Hannah Dunn, Occupational Therapist and founder of D.O.T.S. Paediatric OT. D.O.T.S. Paediatric OT offers occupational therapy services and education for children, parents, educators and other professionals. Hannah shares her strategies on her good retention rate. The first thing she asked her team was what they wanted when moving to their new offices. The team agreed they would like a shared office space. Financially Hannah could have been using that room as an additional clinical space however it was more important to her to have her team happy and working together. What a difference it makes when a business values its team!
My question to you is what strategies do you make as small business owners to keep your employee retention high? Tune in now: https://www.nacre.com.au/season-4-episode-39/

I started and finished this book in one day. I realized it was time to share so others hopefully don’t feel the isolation we have put ourselves in. Our daughter is fierce, strong, sensitive, and isolated in her own little world of over stimulation, struggles with coping, and anxiety. Parenting is hard and realizing and learning that your child is special needs is confusing and relieving all in one. Realizing these things while the world keeps moving, expectations are building, and stopping to reset feels impossible can rattle you to your core. The past year has been hard, when your child’s life is going through something it impacts every aspect of your life and those around you. We have made major life decisions, career changes, caused pain, canceled plans, dream shifting, and accommodations that seem extreme. Our marriage has grown but been tested. We work hard to make sure our son is not left in the wake. We blame ourselves and get stuck in the cycle of what we could have done to help her sooner. We’ve been judged plenty for our decisions and also loved through some hard times. We have put our identity as a family under review and some days it’s merely about leaning on god as strength.
With that, thank you to those of you have have been with us as we go through this discovery, that have stuck by and watched us fumble, and that have been resilient as we struggle to cope ourselves. This has just started and we still need you, we can’t do it alone.
Tater Tot and Dottie love going on magic carpet rides during our teen client’s occupational therapy session! 😄
This activity provides proprioceptive input (the sensation from muscles and joints) which lets us know where our body is in space. Activities such as running, lifting weights, vacuuming, and carrying groceries can also provide this type of input. 🏃🏻♀️
Proprioceptive input is important because it can improve self-regulation, attention span, and help individuals better cope with stress and challenging situations.
I was finally able to purchase a set of the New Balance FuelCore Sonic, which features the BOA quick lacing system. These first caught my eyes months ago due to the slip-on design. Having limited mobility and weak hands I am always looking for things with function, ease and style. Currently for most of my shoes I use cord locks to quickly tighten the laces. The BOA system would tighten with a turn of a dial and a quick release with a pull. The laces in the system are very thin but strong, spread across the side of the feet that do not feel uncomfortable. To release the laces, you pop up the disk that tighten them. The shoes in itself are very light and breathable. In the technical specs, the FuelCore Sonic is a neutral cushioning shoe.
After a week wearing the shoe I can say that it has added ease and saved couple minutes out of my day from tying and re-tying my laces. I would like to see the BOA lacing system added to more shoes in the future. I like it better than shoes with a sock-like fit because those can be difficult to put on. It’s also an improvement over Velcro straps, which can look childish and needs good grip and strength to secure on.
Estimular a autonomia da criança é um aspecto muito relevante, e que nós, terapeutas incentivamos bastante.
Quando pensamos em elaborar uma atividade, é necessário entender que apesar da nossa seleção, nós devemos proporcionar a criança um incentivo à escolha.
Pais devem incentivar isso sempre que puderem, então: ‘‘Qual brinquedo você quer levar, esse ou aquele’’, ‘‘ Qual biscoito você quer comer’’, ‘‘Qual blusa você quer usar’’? ↘Quando proporcionamos a uma criança o poder de escolha, estamos incentivando a tomada de decisão, que influencia diretamente em sua autonomia e independência.

if everyone in a yoga class is trying the hardest variation of a pose, do you?
since we are only human, it’s natural that ego can occasionally interfere with our yoga practice. in my own experience, I have sometimes forced difficult poses because of others in the room. I let my competitive nature overpower the reason I got on the mat that day. ————————
if this has ever happened to you, know that you are not the only one & that breaking the habit will make you stronger in your life off the mat. ———————
a couple things to try: - practice with your eyes closed - meditate for 5 mins each morning - focus on being kind to yourself during class (more to come on this) xo #practicelikeyou#illuminate

Getting ready for summer with a fun coloring page to work on a variety of skills! This student used her PODD communication book to choose the colors she wanted to use. 🖍 Then she worked hard on reaching, grasping, and releasing the crayons as well as on motor control to color☀️🏖. The student was very engaged in the activity and became more motivated when she realized her increased independence and motor control with coloring towards the end of the session! Not all activities have to be extravagant toys, equipment and materials, sometimes less is more! 🙌🏼 #occupationaltherapy#pediatricoccupationaltherapist#schoolbasedot#speechlanguagepathology#progress
