Three Ashland biology majors to start Occupational Therapy programs

Science majors at Ashland University pursue a number of different health-related professional careers.  In the last few years we have had a growing number of students work towards admission to graduate programs in occupational therapy (OT).  We are excited that three of our biology majors will be starting OT programs this Fall.

Chelsea Kaminski
Chelsea Kaminski will be graduating this spring and has been accepted into the Master of Occupational Therapy program at Chatham University in Pittsburgh, PA.  

After helping our woman's basketball team win a national championship, Beth Mantkowski will also be finishing at AU this Fall and will be joining the Master of OT program at Cleveland State.  She will be entering with Merianna Shihada (Biology '12), who has been working in an orthopedic practice since graduating from AU last fall where she had the opportunity to shadow the occupational therapists on staff.
