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!
