Get to Know You: Carolyn Miller
In Get to Know You, we're asking our therapists a few questions to give our families a peek into who they are as people, not simply therapy providers. This month's Get to Know You features Occupational Therapist Carolyn Miller:
What is your favorite thing about your career?
I can wake up every day and know that I am here to help others. I could never be in a career field that was only money-driven or where the end goal was something other than the care and enhancement of other people's quality of life. This is what I was put on this earth to do, and it is a profound expression of my faith.
Have you ever had a nickname? What is it?
I have had several nicknames over the years because I frequently moved schools during my childhood. My thought was that if I established a different nickname at every school I had gone to I would be able to tell where someone is from right away should they contact me in the future. Most of my nicknames were cartoon or anime based because I am a huge geek. Haha.
Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?
I would probably want the movie of my life to be animated. I'm not very into pop-culture but I love drawing and actually saw myself as an animation director prior to being called to this field.
What three items would you take with you on a deserted island?
A working phone, a helicopter, and a great pilot. I am a complete extrovert and would not want to be on a deserted island long.
If you had to describe yourself as an animal, which one would it be?
I would totally be a baby panda. They are playful, loving, and have a cute sense of humor. Plus I eat a lot of vegetables. :)
