Last week I had the opportunity to interview Victoria Elridge, commissioner of the CHFS Department for Aging and Independent Living. It’s not often you meet someone who knew what they wanted to do from an early age. As a store cashier in her teens, Victoria connected with a special needs child. That experience launched her journey to become an occupational therapist, earning a bachelor’s degree in occupational science and a master’s in occupational therapy from EKU. Commissioner Elridge’s clinical experience includes working with amputees, burn patients and patients with spinal cord injuries, dementia, joint replacements and non-brain injury trauma. In CHFS Community Podcast Episode 9 (31:46), we discuss the importance of human validation and giving people the power to set their own goals. ~ CHFS Secretary Eric Friedlander
