How Traveling Impacted Melanie’s Passion for OT
“As an occupational therapist, my days are spent constantly with people, meeting them where they are in their recovery and thinking creatively and holistically on how to make their world more meaningful. This is what I love most about my career. Sadly everything changed as I worked full time through the pandemic, all the joy I felt from being an OT was burning away and I was suffocating in it. I knew I needed a change to renew my love for this career. Becoming a travel OT has done just that as I find myself even more passionate about what I do with each assignment I take. This opportunity has renewed my joy for OT in ways I never expected. I have the privilege to arrive into new cultures and new environments with an open mind to learn and an open heart to provide those I work with, with the highest level of care, experience, and a new found purpose. I look forward to more adventures in my career as a travel OT and to see where the road takes me.”
