Hey y’all. I’m keeping with the theme game and this week I want to highlight some amazing work that occupational therapy practitioners are doing over on Teachers Pay Teachers.

Well let me just say, they are and they have some amazing content for therapists in pediatrics.

Did I Really Forget to Post Last Week?

Why yes, yes I did. Oops!

From not having internet to having our stuff get delivered to our new place, I guess you can say that The BOOT got booted to the end of my to-do. Apologies to making you wait, but I know this feature was totally worth it. Time to get back on track, now that things are starting to settle down over here.

Last Monday, I released a new podcast episode with Emilia Dewi from @the_lymph_therapist and let me just say it was mind-blowing. We chat all about the lymphatic system and specifically navigating life with cancer-related lymphedema. I also put out an episode with my takeaways this week so if you haven’t listened to them yet, take some time for these episodes. So much good stuff that should not be missed.

There’s also a brand new episode of the OT Roundtable podcast out now asking the question “Should every OT practitioner be a fieldwork educator?” Nancy from @lovelly_ot joined the Roundtablers for an amazing discussion about the do’s and don’ts of fieldwork education.

Also, if you want to be featured in an upcoming podcast episode, get your voicemails in. I can’t wait to share all the amazingness I have received. Here’s the current question of the month- What’s your best advice for OT and OTA students?

For this month’s #30daymovementchallenge we’re doing #animalwalks4lyfe. If you wanna join in, post a video on your Instagram story, tag me @ot.4.lyfe, and use the #lunges4lyfe so we can hold each other accountable #accountabilOT.
