I'm Interested in Teaching--Now What?
Welcome to the second season of The Innovative OT Podcast! I am so excited for this season. In today's episode, I have Ali de la Montaigne on the podcast to discuss all things related to getting into academia. Ali is a colleague of mine and recently started as a full-time faculty member at the beginning of October. She has been teaching at Midwestern University as an adjunct professor since December of 2018 and has nine years of clinical experience (specializing in acute care). If you have the teaching bug and aren't sure where to start--you are going to want to tune into this episode!

Ali received a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Health and Human Performance from Saint Mary’s College of Northern California and a master's degree in Occupational Therapy from Midwestern University. Ali’s clinical experience in Occupational Therapy began in 2012 and since has experience working in acute/subacute rehabilitation, neuro outpatient, home health and acute care/ICU.
