“Tabor provided me with a community that helped challenge me academically and in my faith. In one of my classes at Tabor, I was given the opportunity to observe in different physical and occupational therapy clinics, this is where I found my passion for occupational therapy. I am currently working for RehabVisions at St. Luke Hospital as an Occupational Therapist where I had the chance to observe during my time at Tabor. If it hadn’t been for that experience at Tabor and for my professors who guided and equipped me, I wouldn’t be where I am today. At Tabor, I was not only able to develop skills needed for my profession, but also how to integrate my faith into caring for my patients.”
