For Brittany Bard the confidence to change her major early in her educational journey was made possible via options at Madisonville Community College (MCC).
As a result of her hard work and determination, Ms. Bard is now a certified occupational therapist assistant (OTA) at Kindred Healthcare in Bowling Green, Kentucky. She earned an associate in applied science from MCC in 2008. That same year she was the only minority student in the OTA program, and began a journey to provide a need for a diverse and globally connected workforce in her field.
Ms. Bard began her college studies at Murray State University (MSU) in Murray, Ky. After being enrolled a year and changing her major, of which MSU did not offer, she became aware of the OTA program at MCC. She quickly enrolled at MCC with the hopes of making her hard work bring success in something she felt was a fit for her. After graduation Ms. Bard received her certification from the National Board of Occupational Therapy and began a career that allowed her to provide a range of treatment activities to encourage people from all walks of life.
Ms. Bard enjoys working in a skilled nursing facility, providing therapy and treatment results to elderly patients. She hopes to continue serving this particular need in a community where it is needed.
