Student Representative: Colorado Mesa University

Name: Siena Podgorny, OTS

What do you love about OT?

I love how OT highlights the inter-connectedness of mental health, physical health, the close environment and the larger society as a whole. Because of this, I believe that OT will prepare me to be a strong advocate for people in my community.

How did you choose this profession?

My dad had ALS when I was in high school and many different medical professionals cycled in and out of our house. I especially noticed the OTs and the devices they brought over to improve his quality of life as the disease progressed.

Why did you choose to become an OTAC student representative?

I grew up in Colorado and have an appreciation for the communities within it. I see OTAC as a way to connect with other OTs around the state and I am excited for the opportunity to get involved at this level!

What's your favorite thing to do in Colorado?

I love all things Colorado but especially outdoor music events! I'll never say no to listening to music in a park, with a view of the mountains... and a picnic!


OTAC is the Occupational Therapy Association of Colorado. It is a non-profit organization that strives to increase the quality of care and level of professionalism to the practice of OT in Colorado.
