Puget Sound Perspective
"As evidenced in the university’s mission, the opportunity to continually explore and integrate new knowledge drew me to University of Puget Sound. There is a clear emphasis on reflection as an iterative process for each member of the community – faculty, staff, and students.”
Dr. Sidhu enjoys spending time with family, whether outdoors hiking and exploring, or indoors playing games and reading. She loves cooking all different types of cuisine and traveling throughout the world, including three months recently living in northwest India.
OT is the Liberal Arts
“Occupational therapy, like the liberal arts, aims to seek each person’s fullest human potential within the context of their given occupations. This includes creativity, intentionality, and purpose in life.”
Scholarly interests include reflective practice, knowledge translation and student learning across a wide variety of settings.
