How long have you been with HDS?
2 years. I have been with HDS since June 2015. I was a student here for my second year clinical placement in the Neuro Department.
What you like about your job:
I am hired as a casual rehab assistant, so that makes my job interesting. I get to work in many departments (Ortho, Neuro, In-patient, Out-patient) and this allows me to work with the different therapists and assistants. I love being able to do that because I have learned and continue to learn so much as each therapist/assistant does things a little differently.
Any advice for someone coming into your line of work:
I would advise anyone coming into the profession to take their clinical placements seriously and treat them like a job interview. You never know what connections you will make along the way and if it will lead to employment after graduation.
I enjoy staying active and have been doing kick boxing for almost one year now. Being healthy is important to me so I can be a good role model for the patients. I also enjoy cooking and have been known to make some really good salted caramel sauce from scratch.
