Welcome and nice to meet you!
Hello!! Thank you so much for joining me on my first blog post. I’m so excited to share my passion for everything related to who I am….so, who am I?? Well, I’m a wife to an amazing husband, a mom to a vivacious teen daughter and spunky son, a follower of Christ, and the main reason that I even started my social media platform and blog….drum roll….you guessed it…an occupational therapist!!! Everything you see on my blog, my Facebook page, and Instagram page will be related to what I know, what I’ve learned, and what I love.
A little history about my professional life…I graduated with a Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy in 2002…seems like a lifetime ago…I began working with adults in inpatient rehab for 3 years before I switched to pediatric occupational therapy in a school setting. That switch was the hardest thing for me at that time, but it was a choice made to foster a better work schedule as my husband and I were planning on building our family. Every day for the first 6 months, I doubted my choice to switch from adults to kids…even in grad school, I swore that I wouldn’t work in pediatrics, and now here I was trying to figure out the workings of children. With the help of an awesome mentor, colleagues, and special education team, I was able to grow in confidence with my skills and now I can’t imagine not ever working with children. I’m so thankful for my medical rehab background and I still love keeping that part of brain challenged, so you may also see some posts related to adult therapy in the future.
I can’t wait to keep sharing my experiences, thoughts, and lessons learned a pediatric occupational therapist, mom, and wife. And, don’t be surprised if I sprinkle in tidbits about lifestyle trends and even about my spiritual journey because that all makes me who I am. Please follow me on FB and IG @otkatieyoon and subscribe to my emails for updated blog posts and happenings. See you soon!
