She explained to me that occupational therapy was concerned with helping the patient in their daily activities and that the OT field was a very interpersonal job, which I loved to hear. Also, as my sister had alluded to before, the therapist told me in great detail how creativity plays a central role in the profession. I couldn’t help but become overjoyed to hear all of these details of an occupational therapist. I’ve always loved creativity and interacting with people even more. The biggest aspect I was elated over the most was the opportunity to not only help a patient physically but also mentally cheer them on and encourage them.

However, the biggest reason why this occupation appeals to me is, because I want to have the ability to make a difference and make an impact in my patients lives.

Physical Therapists are individuals that help their patients diminish pain and regain mobility, yet it means so much more. For me, becoming a Physical Therapist means I get to take part in enhancing a person’s life and seeing growth and change in their future. I get to use every single day what I have observed numerous times. I will experience so much from their gains; I will watch them push their self, break barriers, and achieve goals.

I was able to learn how to work with students on their running, and the students were able to learn how to be healthy and active while having fun. It was an amazing experience to see them all improve their times with each session and having fun while doing it. Obesity is such a wide spread problem across our nation, so I am very thankful to have a positive impact on our students, and show them that being active and staying healthy can be something fun they can do with their family and friends. From this experience, I would like to see all of our schools in the district have a running club in place.
Medical Assisting Is For Me! Working as a medical assistant can be extremely exciting, all the new things that you can learn all throughout your career and it all starts with school! After I worked as a medical assistant, for about a year, I decided to expand my scope of knowledge, to get certified and begin a career as a certified medical assistant. The diversity, the stable career, the ability to support my son and me, and to allow us to live an independent lifestyle was a major attraction for this career field. The medical assistant career is a good fit for my personality because I greatly enjoy helping others, keeping busy and learning new things.
The day that I was hired as a physical therapy aide made me feel that I was one step closer to achieving my goal. After hours of volunteering, the owner of the clinic saw that I had something valuable to offer. The feeling of accomplishment surged through me as I was able to guide these patients through their exercise programs. This brought me closer to the patients, and I was able to see the improvements I have facilitated to bring about. I was told that one will find the happiest people in therapy, and this was definitely true whenever I entered the rehabilitation centers.
I have a lot of self-efficacy in my values and skill relating to this career path. I will continue to build on my personal traits, as well as professional experience, to appeal to potential employers when I reach that stage in my career path. Pediatric Occupational Therapists address many different areas, being cognitive skills, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, social skills, and self-care tasks. Weekly schedules can vary, depending on the child and his/her needs. It also depends on the environment I placed in, which can be a school, clinic, hospital or even a separate private program.
When I first started my fieldwork at Creative Gifts I was unsure of what to do as an occupational therapy assistant student (OTAS). Though I have worked with this population, adults with developmental disabilities and am very comfortable in this setting, I am there in another capacity, as an occupational therapy (OT) practitioner. Once I started to see the clients from a perspective of an OT practitioner I was able to incorporate teachings that I learned from the classroom to help me provide services and create interventions for the clients on my caseload. I have had several situations at Creative Gifts, where I have encountered situations in which I felt that I was a true occupational therapy assistant (OTA) and felt confident in my skills.
