Occupational Therapy in the World Today
My capstone project focuses on the sensory and behavioral side of pediatric occupational therapy. Over the past three years I have had the opportunity to volunteer with and shadow pediatric occupational therapists and I hope that through my project you can see all that I have learned from these experiences and gain a greater understanding of occupational therapy. See my website here.

Technology in Music
I am a sound engineer for my church, and I love being behind the sound board to control music. I hope that I am able to spark an interest in music to show people that music isn’t only about the performers. It is also about making the music sound good, which everyone can do. See my website here.
