Meet Our Officers

President: Stephanie Lursen — I chose the OTA program because I am very passionate about helping others. I love that occupational therapy helps individuals get back to doing functional and meaningful activities. Occupational therapy focuses on helping the individual as a whole, rather than just a specific body part, which is one of the amazing things about OT. A fun fact about me is that I am an EMT.

Vice President: AnnaLisa Oliver Brown — I was inspired to become an OTA after a moving experience with amputees during my time in the military. I am a California native, former sign language interpreter, soldier, and a mother of three. The commute from Webster City may be long, but totally worth it to be a part of a career that values healthy minds and bodies and helps people live life to their fullest potential!

Activities Director: Lara Spece — I have always wanted to help people and when I met an Occupational Therapist I knew this was a perfect fit for me. I am a mom and I will graduate at 48 years young.

Media Director: Alex Johnson — I went to an Occupational Therapist when I was younger and I was curious to learn more so I did some shadowing and loved it. I like how this field has so much variety and helps people do the daily activities they want to do. In my free time I love playing with my puppy, cooking, and helping others.

Treasurer: Hannah Pickert — I chose the OTA program because I knew I wanted to study a health profession and help others. OT is looking at the person as a whole and focusing on their potential in life. As Virginia Stoffel stated "Occupational therapist practitioners ask "What matters to you?" not, "What's the matter with you?". I know I made the right decision to join this program because we learn a lot of information as well as getting hands on experience/learning. A couple fun facts about me are that I have three dogs, I love to listen to music, and I like to take walks to explore nature.

Secretary: Hannah Axline — I chose OTA because I love to encourage and help others! This career will allow me to help others every single day!"
