Allison Mula

PhD Candidate - ESR 2

Allison Mula received her BSc in Occupational Science, her MSc in Occupational Therapy, and minor in African American Studies from University at Buffalo in Buffalo, New York in 2012. She received her Doctor of Occupational Therapy degree from Boston University, Sargent College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences in 2019. For the previous 9 years she has worked as an acute care occupational therapist and ergonomic consultant in the Washington DC metro area in the United States. Being an Occupational Therapist, ergonomist, and certified yoga instructor, have strongly influenced her understanding that a holistic lens is a crucial component of true health and wellbeing. Her minor in African American studies gave her the insight to understand that marginalized communities likely have limited access to services that embrace this approach. With this as a driving force for her work, she became involved as a volunteer with a community housing development where she conducted relaxation classes for the residents, and also served as a resource for a non-profit organization that provides services to individuals who have experienced trauma. Considering her passion for working with underserved communities, it was a natural transition to begin her exploration into her thesis topic, exploring the impact of contemporary social discourses on the play of families with children at risk of play deprivation.
