Hi my name is Hannah Kosinski and I received my degree in Mechanical Engineering here at NAU. I am currently applying to occupational therapy graduate programs and I am hoping to attend school this upcoming fall. I work for Janelle Bauerle in the ADE Loan Library at NAU which focuses on loaning assistive technology out to Arizona schools. I fell in love with the field of assistive technology my senior year of undergrad, where for my final project I got to design and construct a wheel chair for a toddler with Spina Bifida. My goal is to become a occupational therapist who specializes in rehabilitative engineering.
