She recently completed her degree requirements at Lyon College and planned to walk with the class of 2015. Rachel was a psychology major who transferred to Lyon from UACCB and was a commuter student during her years at Lyon. She enrolled in graduate school in occupational therapy (OT) in the Memphis UTHSC MOT program. She had begun her third week of OT school with her classmates. She had already made many friends and connected with UT classmates and instructors. Her goals and her purpose for her life were firmly set in high school when she learned about Occupational Therapy. She knew her path and actively pursued it. Early on, Rachel was drawn to people with special needs, particularly children and teenagers. Her life dream was to be an Occupational Therapist. She loved helping people and knew that OT was the perfect career to utilize her God-given gifts. One of her last journal entries was this quote which sums up her and Occupational Therapists perfectly: "Love is...meeting the needs of other people."
Rachel's family, in remembrance of her, would like to set up a scholarship fund. If you feel compelled to donate, her family would be honered by your donation.
