What do you love about Recreation Therapy?
I love seeing youth feel better after an activity than when they started an activity. I also love seeing a youth’s light bulb go off when they get the life lesson in the activity.
What is the most challenging part of your job?
Days that the youth struggle.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
Helping children and actually seeing a change in the youth.
