Occupational Therapist Angela Box, MS, OTR, grew up in St. Charles, MO, and graduated with a Masters in Occupational Therapy from Maryville University in St. Louis in 2005. She and her husband moved to Oxford, MS in 2013 when my husband took a position at Ole Miss, and the couple now has 3 children - aged 6, 3, and 2 months. Angie says that she has always had a passion for pediatrics and as such, she has worked as an OT in early intervention, outpatient, and inpatient hospital settings. She says that she found her calling, though, as a school-based therapist through her work as the OT for the Oxford School District. Always looking for new and creative solutions to help children reach their full potential, Angie recognized a need for community resources and support for children and families with special needs and started Oxford Special Needs Creations in January of 2017.
On this episode of On the Air, Angie talks about her path into the field of OT, her work as a school-based OT, and her mission as the founder of a non-profit organization.
Occupational therapist Guili Krug, OTR, PhD, CLA, is the founding program director and a professor in the Program in Occupational Therapy at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, TX. She has been an OT for 29 years and has worked across many practice settings with varied populations, but her clinical passion is in adult neurorehabilitation. Guili has been an OT educator for over 20 years. On this episode, I talk about how I met Guili, and she shares about her path into the field of OT and into academia. We reminisce about our days as OT students, and Guili recalls an experience she had on Level II fieldwork that left a big impression on her. We also discuss our thoughts about how occupational therapy students and practitioners can strive for excellence.
Giuli is married to Jeff, a PT, and has three kids, Gabe (20), Sophie (19) and Ellie (16).
