The purpose of this qualitative study was to understand the evolution of occupational therapy practice in the lens of the practitioner, Judy Godfread, in her years of practice in North Dakota from 1976-2012. The study collected 29 life histories of influential occupational therapy practitioners in ND and WY. The goal was to detail the contributions of these individuals and how they shaped the context of practice in two rural states. Key information was gathered regarding influences that influenced occupational therapy during the years the participants practiced. The study is intended to provide current and future generations of occupational therapists a view of the history and how occupational therapy practice has evolved from its inception to current practice in North Dakota.
