Recommendations from this episode:
"If you're in OT school and you're preparing to enter the profession, I know that can be an intimidating place. You know a lot more than you think you do, and so just have confidence in that knowledge and your desire to help. If you have that passion and that energy, even if you don't know, you'll find the answer."
