Review for Nature's Edge Therapy Center, Inc., Rice Lake, WI, USA
I got the honor and privilege of working as a volunteer intern this summer at Nature's Edge Therapy Center, Inc. for university credit. I am an undergraduate student at Colorado State University studying Equine Science and Business Administration with a Pre-Occupational Therapy focus. I hope to one day work as an Occupational Therapist specializing in Hippotherapy.
When I began my internship, I was immediately given great trust and responsibility; the staff is incredibly friendly and function like a well-oiled machine. The teamwork demonstrated among this group of professionals is unparalleled. As a volunteer, I was welcomed as part of this family-minded team and was constantly encouraged to challenge myself and share my ideas. Nature's Edge feels safe and comforting, providing an excellent atmosphere for therapy and an engaging environment for learning.
The experiences and wisdom I have gained from my time as an intern with Nature's Edge can only be described as life-changing. I was not simply "the intern"; I was a member of the team and part of the Nature's Edge family. I was given the tremendous opportunity to make meaningful connections with both staff and the clients I worked with throughout my time at Nature's Edge. In seeing the hope and happiness this center brings to its clients and their families, I have found passion and motivation to provide the same level of expert care in my future career in Hippotherapy. Truly an inspiring place!
