We are delighted to announce that our guest this week on “Immigration with Tahmina” on Desi 1250am will be Teresa L. Fair-Field! Teresa is a local Seattle entrepreneur and business woman, owner of OT Clubhouse. She recently applied for an H1b visa in the lottery on April 1st for an employee. When she agreed to the interview, she had no idea whether she would ‘win’ the H1b lottery. Originally USCIS announced they would start H1b adjudications on May 16th, so we wanted to ensure we had an interview that was as relevant as possible. Tune into listen to her story to learn what the H1b lottery means for her business. You can find out whether she ‘won’ or not. It was indeed brave of her to agree to this blindly!
With over 20 years in the field of occupational therapy and work in both large and small heath networks, Teresa began a private practice in pediatric therapy in 2011 with a mission to improve the family experience. Teresa’s commitment to child development began when her family became a consumer of pediatric services. Her OT background and parenting experience provides a unique “I’ve been there” perspective. She opened the OT Clubhouse in 2013, and has since joined with partners in speech therapy and psychology to form Sandbox Therapy Group a collaborative care model to improve communication and outcomes with a team approach.
Teresa graduated from Pacific University (1993) in Forest Grove, Oregon, earning the Outstanding Graduate in Occupational Therapy award. She spent the majority of her career in neuro-rehabilitation, and enjoys understanding sensation and behavior from a nervous system perspective. She is certified in Ayres Sensory Integration® and is qualified to deliver the SIPT assessment. Teresa is currently working on a doctorate in occupational therapy (2016) with Chatham University in Pennsylvania. Her doctoral focus is to increase parent’s sense of efficacy in managing their child’s routines through a model of coaching and support.
Teresa will be on my radio talk show “Immigration with Tahmina Watson”at 10 am on May 17th on Desi 1250 AM. You can tune into your radio at 1250 AM or listen online at www.desi1250am.com. Can’t wait to talk immigration and much more with her! Thank you so much, Teresa, in advance!
