Sara Liberow: Skilled at Skulls
“I like the rehabilitation aspect of Occupational Therapy—getting people back on their feet. The job itself is also very flexible, and since I want to have a family one day, I’d like to have that freedom. But the main reason is that I like the fact that it’s not just a desk job. I’ll be helping people overcome their physical challenges every day.”
After seminary, Sara took a second gap year to intern for Palo Alto, California’s The Friendship Circle, an organization that pairs up special-needs children and teens with high school volunteers to participate in a variety of fun, exciting programs. “I’d never worked with special needs kids before, and the internship really let me get a glimpse of what it was like. While there, I came to realize that I wanted to specialize in the special-needs population after completing my coursework for OT.”
