047 – The Life and Times of the Occupational Therapy Hub

There aren’t too many OT’s in the online space that hasn’t come across or seen posts from The Occupational Therapy Hub. I’ve known Jamie for about as long as Occupied has existed. He was one of the very first people to contact me after the release of my very first episode. Since that time Jamie has always been a strong supporter of Occupied and all of the OT podcasts out there.

From Radio and TV then on to Occupational Therapy, Jamie discusses his journey and all the ups and downs along the way. Glad I was even able to teach him a new saying:

“The important thing to remember about the idiom “how the sausage gets made” is that it always refers to UNPLEASANT details (not boring details, unimportant details, etc.) and it always refers to a PROCESS. It means that there are a number of details that we’d rather not hear about.”


Jamie had a vision when he was an OT student and that was to create a “hub” where OT related resources could be curated into one spot for ease of access for therapists and OT students. He poured his heart and soul and energy into building the Occupational Therapy Hub and released it to the world (all for free I might add). He has pulled together a worldwide team of volunteers to continue building The Hub as well as developing an online community of therapists looking to learn and grow together.

He has juggled all this whilst also making the transition from student to new-grad as well as all of life’s other trials and tribulations. His passion for growth and learning is evident and something we could all use a little more of.
