Desiree Smith - SLCC Student Representative Elect
I am originally from Mesa, Arizona but came to Utah to do SLCC'S Occupational Therapy Assistant Program. I served a church service mission in the Utah Ogden Mission and found out about SLCC'S amazing OTA program from the people here. During high school I worked at a camp for children with special needs which is where I was introduced to Occupational Therapy. I began shadowing different types of facilities and soon found that I loved this career. My favorite part is the one on one time we get to spend with people helping them improve their lives in the way they want to improve. I am the youngest of four children and enjoy family game nights and Sunday dinner with my siblings who live here. I am excited to learn more about UOTA through the Student Task Force!
