    Episode 16: The Occupation of Worry

    Episode 16: The Occupation of Worry

    Sorry everyone, it's just me today. This episode is dedicated to the topic of anxiety and 'the occupation of worry'.  I discuss everything from how anxiety is developed within the brain to evidence-based methods you can use on yourself, as well as with your clients.  Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, there has been an increase in anxiety in both adults and children.  Occupational therapy practitioners need to be aware of how to appropriately address anxiety clinically, as well as how to manage it in their own life.

    Episode 13: It's all about the hustle with Rumy Petkov

    Episode 13: It's all about the hustle with Rumy Petkov

    Hello Everyone!  This episode is a MUST LISTEN!  Today I have on Rumy Petkov- an occupational therapist that specializes in injury prevention and treatment.  He has a very unique and diverse background!

    Rumy was born in Bulgaria and moved to the US in 1999 with his parents at the age of 6. His parents moved them all to the US to give their children a better opportunity.

    After high school, Rumy pursued a degree in Athletic Training at Winona State University where he discovered his passion for physical rehabilitation and wellness.

    After graduating from his undergrad, he began working as an athletic trainer but really enjoyed looking at therapy through a more holistic lens. This led him to apply for Occupational Therapy school and he was accepted into the Occupational Therapy program at AT Still University.

    While being a student at AT Still University he started his own side business treating injuries through manual therapy and exercises. This sparked his entrepreneurial endeavor and he decided that he wanted to take his business to the next level.
