Since 2009 Blanca Concepcion has been practicing Occupational Therapy as a way of outsourcing her altruistic spirit to help others. She was initially struck by its patient-centered approach; accommodating to a patient’s individual needs, as opposed to forcing them to meet clinical standards of well-being.
Although she first wanted to become a hand specialist, and spent several years in a variety of other fields, she eventually found herself in pediatrics. Her experiences in pediatrics opened her heart toward working with children and brought her” so much fulfillment and joy” that she could never imagine her life without “these kids” ever again.
Blanca attended Florida International University and completed her masters in Occupational Therapy.
