Today on the show we're joined by Nancy Yamoah, OTP who is a light in our profession, and truly embodies what it means to be a fulfilled and happy OT entrepreneur. In this conversation, we dive into how we as clinicians can reignite our passion for OT by pivoting into different areas of our profession, and exploring entrepreneurship, non traditional paths, and so much more.
