Keiser University student, Caely Perez, chose Keiser’s Occupational Therapy Assistant program because she had a vision of becoming an occupational therapist and being able to influence lives, while providing elderly people a safe place to spend their days. —
In August 2010, Caely graduated from Keiser University with her AS in Occupational Therapy Assistant. With a lot of determination and perseverance, Caely was able to open her own adult day care and transportation company.
Professionally, this was a big step but now, a year and a half later, the facility is at maximum capacity and Caely is looking for a new site for the center. Aside from running her business, A Place for You Adult Daycare & Rehab Center, Caely is also the President of the Florida Adult Day Services Association (FADSA) and serves on the Advisory Board at Keiser University. Caely Perez stated, “I owe a great deal of who I am today to the education I received at Keiser and recommended it to both of my sisters, who are also graduates!”
