Meet Our Team

Our therapists have extensive pediatric knowledge in each of their disciplines. We strive to use evidence-based practice and use the most current treatment strategies available. All our pediatric therapists keep up to date by attending continuing education courses relevant to their field. Therapists work the child and family to provide the best care for their child.

I was adopted by Gabby in December of 2017 and have been a vital part of our hippotherapy sessions since March of 2018. Prior to living with Gabby, I was a lesson horse where I worked with numerous children to help them learn to ride. Although I am on the larger side, I have a big soft heart and tend to be picked on by my tiny brother Bo. I love all of my siblings but most of all I love kids, especially when I get hugs, and have been known to give soft kisses.

                                                                                                    Trixie

I am as sweet as a Georgia Peach and as round as one too. I was adopted by Gabby in October of 2018 and started with the program in January 2019. I love being in the program and helping out all the kids. My favorite hobby is EATING!!! If I had my way I would eat all day long, grass is my favorite, but I do enjoy a peppermint or two.  Most people don’t realize that I have a sweet birthmark on my right eye. My mom has to take special care of me, but I don’t let it get in the way of living my best life.
