Interview with Kandyse

Tell us about yourself

I am from Indiana and moved to Arizona at the beginning of the summer of 2021 to follow my dreams of living in the mountains and having adventure at my doorstep. I enjoy challenging myself to try and learn new things, be outside, play music, and take road trips.

Why did you become an occupational therapist?

The reason I pursued becoming an Occupational Therapist was because I fell in love with the opportunity to be able to help others of all abilities overcome their challenges by influencing their psychological, physical, and emotional well-being. Being able to witness and be a part of those groundbreaking moments is one of the most gratifying feelings.

Why do you think your coworkers nominated you for being adventurous?

I think I was nominated for being adventurous because I am often outside hiking, paddle boarding, off-roading, or on a road trip traveling to a new state or National Park.

What do you love most about working with TEAM 4 Kids?

TEAM 4 Kids has allowed me more opportunities to grow in my career than I have ever expected and has made my transition to living in Arizona 3 years ago one that I will be forever grateful for. My coworkers have become some of my best friends and I love how fun and supportive everyone is! I love working in a place that allows me to play, learn new things, and help children thrive every day!

What would you consider the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?

The most adventurous thing I have done would probably be taking a 2-week road trip to visit 17 National Parks with my dog and best friend.
