We are sisters

But wait, it gets better: We are only one-half of a pack of therapy siblings! Our brother is a physical therapist and our sister is a certified hand therapist. 

#1 Question We Are Asked?

“Why don’t you start a clinic?”

Answer: We haven’t figured out how to combine home health speech and physical therapy, high-risk infant therapy, and a certified hand therapist. We’ll keep you posted.

Why we do what we do

We want to provide clinicians with the tools they need to become awesome adult-rehab 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.
