Hello, I am a new grad with a doctorate in OT. I just got an offer for a job working at a private school. The offer is 58K with benefits. 15 days PTO. Do you guys think I can negotiate the salary to 70K, which based on my research is the average pay for my level of experience and education? Or is that too much to ask?

I work in a small home care agency around 45 patients, 90 employees, including me and 4 other office staff members.

My position was office coordinator until my boys striped me of that title. But I assist with scheduling, I/T, tech support, supervising, payroll, billing, and more.

What am I actually doing? I feel over worked, over utilized, underpaid (but that's not the biggest issue) and over stimulated.
