I was asked to conduct an interview for the local Portland radio program, Metroscope, to share about Guide Dogs for the Blind and promote the upcoming Oregon Fall Luncheon on November 4th at Rhe Nines Hotel in Portland! I really enjoyed being in the studio a d recording this segment.

I have taken the leap and I applied for the Graduate Certicare Program in Low Vision Rehabilitation for Occupational Therapists at Western Michigan University!! I am so excited to embark on this new career specialty! Unfortunately, the program does not qualify for Federal financial aid. Please consider donating to my GoFubdMe Campaign by following the link below. Also, learn more about what I will be doing as a low vision OT!
I am so excited to announce that I have some amazing opportunities coming up in the next few months! Guide Dogs for the Blind has given me the opportunity to share my story and support GDB at two of their upcoming fundraising events. I will be the keynote speaker at the Annual Portland Fall Luncheon at the Nines Hotel on November 4th and the Holiday Luncheon in San Francisco on December 1st at the St. Francis Hotel!
In addition to getting to speak, they are also creating a video documentary/fundraising video of me and Nabisco, showcasing our life together. I cannot wait to see how it turns out! The filming was so much fun!
I am so grateful for all that Guide Dogs for the Blind has done for me and I am so happy to share my story to help raise funds for this amazing organization.

I am also excited to use this opportunity to share and promote occupational therapy. Even if it is only a short sentence about what OT is, it will be a way to tell the general public about what OT is. It will be a great!
