Hope Witt, OT

I love OT because I have a job like no other, everyday is different. I take pride in knowing that each day I can make a difference-big or small.

My interest in this field developed while at Cornell College majoring in both psychology and kinesiology. Occupational Therapy was a perfect combination of both interest areas.
