Graduate degree(s): MS in Occupational Therapy
Favorite class(es): Fundamentals of design (1st time around), Anatomy (2nd time)
I did more than just change majors, I changed careers! After 4 years working as a corporate interior designer, I did a little soul searching and realized it wasn't the path for me. Once I figured out what direction I wanted to go, it was pretty easy to make a plan and stick to it. I had to go back to take undergraduate classes like chemistry, anatomy and physiology.
Moving from college to career:
My graduate program in Occupational Therapy prepared me very well for my transition to an actual therapist. My company was also great at providing a mentor and scheduling time to learn on the job.
