BA in psychology; MA in occupational therapy.

I've worked in psych OT, long-term care OT, and rehab. Job market dried up, and my company (psych OT at the time) closed its doors. I stepped out of the OT field and have worked the last two years as a counselor/ social services staff in a senior housing setting (using the psych degree, along with my home safety evaluation skills). Will start nursing school in Sept. :) I can't wait!!! :p
