|Melanie Hartley Ponder||Melanie accepted a job at HealthSouth in Edgewood Kentucky. She and Phil are married now.|
|Samantha Laichas||Samantha was hired as a "REAL occupational therapist at Bay Cliff Camp for a second summer. It will be very interesting to be on the non-student side of things, however, I don't think my responsibilities will be any less. COTI is going well too. I work in Indian Hill schools (all of them currently) and all but one of the Norwood City schools. I have about 45 total on my caseload between the schools, which I think is decent. I like school-based therapy, and Linda Campbell is an excellent supervisor. I will eventually learn the clinic side of COTI and then make my way back to a hospital setting eventually. THAT IS, if I cannot get some type of animal-assisted therapy going until then."|
|Mary Catherine Mahon|
update on 3-24-11: I was offered and I accepted the position at the Perlman Center. It sounds like I will be working in the young EI classroom with 1-2 y.o., maybe a preschool class, and will be helping with the aquatics groups with 2 physical therapists. I'll be learning about the AT and maybe doing some evaluations as I become comfortable.
