We are sisters! How cool is that?

BUT WAIT…IT GETS BETTER. Believe it or not, we are actually only one half of a pack of therapy siblings! Our brother is a physical therapist and our sister is a hand therapist. 

Why we do what we do

We want to provide therapists with the tools they need to become awesome adult home health therapists. But deeper than that, we infused this blog and all of our content with the intention to provide you with compassion and support. This isn’t just about conveying knowledge, my friend. We care about you. And we hope that you will pass that caring along to all of your patients and colleagues.

#1 Question We Are Asked? “Why don’t you start a clinic?!”
Answer: We haven’t figured out how to combine high-risk infant therapy, a CHT, and home health SLP & PT. We’ll keep you posted.
