How can I make the most Money as an occupational therapist?

Im a senior in hs right now but this job has caught my eye for my future but the ratio of the amount of schooling (6 years) to their pay is scaring me because that's a lot of money in school alone. I was wondering if its worth it and what can I do to make sure I make the most money I can in this area of study?

What should I expect to do in college?

I will be going to college next fall to study pre-occupational therapy. I will then go to graduate school to continue my studying and get a degree in Occupational Therapy. I was wondering if anyone knew what the course load would be like for this major, what my schedule might look like, and their thoughts on it. Thank you! -Sierra #college #occupationaltherapy #preoccupationaltherapy #health
