Mackenzie and Tracy had a week long journey to California for fieldwork. These are a few of the many sights they recorded for history.

|Allison Hays|| I have started my first full time job in the OT world. I am currently working at the The Guild for Human Services in Waltham, MA ( a town right outside Boston). The Guild is a private, community-based, day and residential year-round special education school. The children at the school range from ages 6-21 with intellectual disabilities, mental health issues, autism and emotional and behavioral challenges. I will be the full time OTR on staff, working with a COTA and OTR consultant. Although this job will call for a lot of responsibility I am looking forward to all of the challenges ahead. It is a great organization with a great need for occupational therapy in all aspects. I am excited to help advocate for our profession and work with some amazing individuals.
Here is the website for The Guild if you want to learn more about it!
Tracy and Mackenzie did quite a bit of sight seeing on the way to the fieldwork site in Visalia California. Tracy made sure to send Georganna a pix of the best part of Las Vegas!
Melanie is now officially engaged. "Here is a picture from the proposal night. :) We went hiking and backpacking and had a picnic overlook the bluffs. After the picnic, he finally proposed (we had been dating for a little over 6 years). There was even a rainbow in the sky, despite it not having rained all day! "
