PEORIA, AZ. — Huntington University Arizona is pleased to announce that Chelsey Edwards has joined the team as the academic fieldwork coordinator in Arizona for Huntington University’s Doctoral Program in Occupational Therapy.
“I have always had a passion for working in academia and helping students be successful as they progress in their academic careers,” said Edwards, which makes this position an ideal fit for her.
Edwards is a Certified Lymphedema Therapist, an NBCOT registered therapist, and holds her OT license. In April, she will graduate with her PPOTD from Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions with an emphasis in education.
“I am completing my post-professional OTD capstone on best practice in fieldwork so I can help support and guide this fieldwork program through evidence-based practice and scholarship through faith in Jesus Christ,” said Edwards, which once again aligns Edwards ideally with her position in HU’s Doctoral Program in Occupational Therapy in Arizona.
