What is your teaching style?

I like to embrace collaborative and group learning, provide autonomy support and make learning meaningful to occupational therapy.

Why do you do what you do?

I teach because I cannot imagine doing anything else. I enjoy spending each day helping students unravel their uniqueness and knowledge in order to develop their personal skillset as future clinicians.  

How do you make learning engaging?

I use a variety of techniques and media to engage all learning styles.

What should students know about you?

I am very approachable and will always listen to concerns.
