Prisca1

I graduated from the Master of Occupational Therapy program at University of New Mexico in 2012.  Since then I have been working as an Occupational Therapist in the Bernalillo Public schools servicing elementary-aged children.  While in school, I was able to experience many different therapeutic settings including: hand therapy, acute care, inpatient, outpatient and home health care. 

I also had the pleasure to serve as the NMOTA student representative.  Prior to graduating from UNM, I graduated with a B.S. in Biology from the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, where I served as the Student Association President. During my time as president, I was responsible for overseeing the budget of the entire student association and all the student clubs.  I look forward to this next chapter and hope to be able to serve NMOTA in a greater capacity.

jimprewOriginally hired to help manage our website in April 2010, Jim, for lack of a better term, has become the NMOTA Toolbox... If there is something he can't help us with, we haven't found it yet.

"Although I'm not an occupational therapist by training or education, because of my experiences working with the homeless during the Regan and Bush Administrations of the 80s and 90s, I have a deep and abiding respect for both the profession and those of you who serve as it's ambassadors. I answered NMOTA's call back in 2010 because at Heart ... I Am OT!"

Aside from being an "Old Techie", before many of us were born, Jim worked as a grassroots homeless advocate, social worker, employment outreach and skills training coordinator, peer counselor, and also served for 5 years as a Board Member of a non-profit Affordable Housing corporation working with low income residents of the San Francisco Bay Area. In 1991 Jim received a Presidential Citation for Outstanding Community Service.
