Samantha is an occupational therapist currently working in inpatient rehab for people with brain injuries. During her career thus far, she has had the opportunity to work in various settings from acute care to community based non-profit. It did not take long into her career to start feeling burnout. As someone who has struggled with depression and anxiety in her life, Samantha tends to check in with her own mental health often. Recognizing how her work was affecting her well-being, Samantha shifted gears to prioritizing her own self care and wellness practices. Doing this, she found more happiness and fulfillment in and out of work. When not working, Samantha enjoys reading in coffee shops, practicing yoga, and spending time outside. She is looking forward to building a community of healthcare providers in my area who are seeking balance and wellness.
