Elise Goodrich - University of Utah Student 1st Year Student Representative

I am a student at the University of Utah representing the MOT class of 2025 - although many of us (myself included) are deciding whether to participate in the university’s first entry-level OTD program. I received a bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University in exercise science. I love rock climbing, backpacking, and spending time outdoors with my husband. I am drawn to Occupational Therapy because of its creativity and playfulness in creating interventions to support the whole person. I look forward to connecting with OT practitioners in UOTA and across the state as we try to support this amazing profession.
