"I met Yoshie when she visited the Philippines during a clinical reasoning workshop.

We were both in the same group during clinical skills exercises with real patients and it was then that I observed her calm and skillful composure with patients.  She was very knowledgeable as an occupational therapist and really had a pleasant and joyful manner with kids! "
