  1. Hi! Awesome podcast and very enlightening.. I have question though, i’m a newly certified COTA and not currently employed. Do you suggest i get additional certifications while I still look for a job? If so, what do you suggest since I am just starting my OT career. Thanks Mandy and Melissa! More power to you both.
