Meet Our Officers

President: Faith Arnold — I chose the Occupational Therapy Assistant program because I love to see people be able to come out of harder times with a deeper meaning through therapy. I want to help others achieve goals and be able to participate in activities they love. I enjoy playing with my kids and Rottweilers.

Vice President: Morgan Krug — I chose the Occupational Therapy Assistant program because I have a passion for helping others. I love that occupational therapy focuses on the whole person and allows individuals to engage in activities that mean the most to them! In my free time I enjoy staying active, spending time with friends/family, and traveling!

Treasurer: Eric Monahan — I choose the Occupational Therapy Assistant program because I enjoy working with people and helping them reach their goals. In the past I have taught swim lessons and I wanted to continue in a field that would allow me to interact and help people in a similar way. Being an occupational therapy assistant gives me the opportunity to work with a variety of different people. In my free time, I really enjoy weight lifting, watching movies, and going out to eat.

Secretary: Emma Baak — Ever since I was little I have always said I wanted to help people perform their everyday tasks, little did I know that I was describing Occupational Therapy. I chose the Occupational Therapy Assistant program at Hawkeye because of the small class sizes and it truly was the best decision for me. I have made friends that all share the same passion as I do and that I know I will have forever. In my free time I enjoy relaxing and watching some of my favorite tv shows or movies.

Social Media:

  • Kierra Toric — I chose the Occupational Therapy Assistant program because it has so many different opportunities and settings to choose from. I love helping others and making a difference in people's lives. Hawkeye's Occupational Therapy Assistant program has been amazing and I love the teachers and classmates I get to work with everyday!

  • Mikayla Hlubek — I chose the Occupational Therapy Assistant program because I have been a CNA for eight years now and have worked alongside physical therapists and occupational therapists. With a little bit of knowledge about occupational therapy and having an interest in helping others in a multitude of ways, I’m not stuck with a certain population as occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants work in a variety of settings. I’m very happy with my decision to attend Hawkeye for the Occupational Therapy Assistant program because the teachers and classmates are wonderful to work with and it’s a great campus to attend! In my free time I enjoy cooking/trying new foods, traveling, and creating connections with those around me.
