Accolades, Award or Notable Achievements
While in graduate school: Secretary, Pi Theta Epsilon- FIU chapter I was selected along with 5 other students from my graduate class to be part of a research grant called POPS (Preparing Occupational Therapists to Practice in Schools). As part of this program I received specialized coursework in early intervention and school-based practice.
I understand the importance of spreading awareness about occupational therapy and its unique value. I am always actively looking for new ways to share and start a conversation that will move the profession forward.
My name is Nathalie Navarrete. I am 27 years old, and I have been an occupational therapist for about 2.5 years. I currently split my time between a pediatric clinic and acute care in a hospital. I was born in Havana, Cuba and raised in Miami, Florida. In 2014, I moved to Bradenton, Florida with my husband and Morkie Kensie. My passion project is heartofot.com a website dedicated to spreading awareness about the occupational therapy profession and providing resources for occupational therapists/occupational therapy students. In my down time you will find me reading a good book, watching Friends, or at my local coffee shop.
