Personal Statement:

I view occupational therapy education as a socialization process, in which students develop specific skills, knowledge, values, and attitudes that constitute membership in their new profession. Throughout my professional career, my clinical and academic focus has been on occupational therapy intervention for individuals with functional loss due to stroke and other neurological disabilities. I have been recognized as a Fellow of the American Occupational Therapy Association for advancement of neurorehabilitation practice. Publications include journal articles, therapy guidelines, and textbook chapters about motor learning, motor function after stroke, standardized assessment of performance, matching relevant assistive devices to individual needs, and long-term adjustment to community living.
