Interview with Egle
Tell us about yourself
I received my Masters in Occupational Therapy from Midwestern in Glendale, AZ and Bachelor’s in Psychology from University of Illinois at Chicago. I am originally from Lithuania but lived in Chicago for about 15 years before moving to Arizona. My hobbies are hiking, yoga, and traveling. I also enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and my dog.
Why did you become an Occupational Therapist?
I became an OT because I wanted to help people with all abilities to be successful in their daily occupations and live their life to the fullest.
Why do you think your coworkers nominated you for being ambitious?
I think my co workers nominated me for being ambitious because I always strive to better myself on a personal level as well as a professional level. I always want to learn more and gain more skills in the OT profession, which will equip me to be a more successful OT.
What do you love most about working with TEAM 4 Kids?
I love working with all my clients and their families and having the best coworkers that support me and help me grow!
If you could have one wish come true, what would it be?
If I had one wish, I would love to heal everyone that is sick.
