Lesley Addison worked on several projects with her mentor, Salvador Bondoc, OTD, OTR/L, CHT, during her mentorship. Lesley is developing an OT Practice article focused on international occupational therapy practice, which will describe the diverse and interesting experiences of practitioners working abroad. Lesley also is creating a proposal focused on providing effective patient education intended for the AOTA Annual Conference & Expo in 2012.
Lesley says the best part of participating in the program was connecting with other practitioners who have a passion for the profession. She gained confidence in her ability to make a difference in the lives of others.
