Heather - Occupational Therapy Student Ambassador
Hello, my name is Heather Spain and I'm from Charleston SC. I graduated from Barnard College at Columbia University and I majored in History.
I love to hula hoop and dress up my pet beagle, Red in my spare time.
There is such a great support system here at MUSC. The faculty and staff want you to succeed and become great at whatever you are studying. They are always providing us with extra resources and are always available to help if you are struggling.
There is always something to do in Charleston! It’s a great place for a study break!
MUSC provides their OT students so many opportunities to volunteer and work within the Charleston community. I really wanted a school that wasn’t isolated and allowed me a chance to start thinking and acting like an OT right from the start. I am seeking out as many pediatric experiences as I can, as I hope to work in a children’s hospital when I graduate.
Feel free to email me with any questions.
