Welcome

IMG_4511In this blog (previously known as mOTivatedtoDO) you will find tidbits of my reflections as a (former) graduate OT student, flashbacks from Level 1 and Level 2 fieldwork clinical rotations, bits and pieces of osteopathic medicine (hashtag student doctor wife life), product reviews on medical apparel, and hopefully a whole lotta

happiness mixed with

>>occupational therapy<<<<<<

I will also be sharing links to my published works from other blogs and websites here as well, which includes my most honorable publication visible on American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) which reflects on my interactions with a grumpy old lady patient.

Read that specific article titled “With Love: Thoughts on Being an Empathetic OT Practitioner” here!

I am by no means even near being an expert on the topics I share (have been an occupational therapy practitioner for 2years) – so please give me grace as I openly share my perspective. I hope to be a positive influence on others and I think highly of constructive feedback I receive! My blog is meant to inspire and advocate for what is near and dear to my heart!

Before you speak, let your words

pass through three gates:

Is it true?

Is it necessary?

Is it kind?

Rumi

Finally, I am glad you are here and hope you stay awhile:)

Say Hi and tell me something good! I’d love to chat with you!

 

with love,

SHANNEN M.
