Meet our occupational therapist, Kelly Munson!
Originally from Saint Louis, MO, Kelly originally worked with individuals with developmental delays in the workplace. She helped young adults with disabilities find jobs, assisted them with training, and followed up in their workplace to ensure long term job satisfaction. This kick-started her interest in Occupational Therapy, which led to Kelly receiving her Masters Degree in Occupational Therapy in 2011 from Saint Louis University. Kelly has spent most of her OT career in a hospital setting.
As a result of her experience with level one trauma patients, she has extensive experience with medically complex patients, having a wide variety of diagnoses. Her specialty and passion is spinal cord Injuries and neurological disorders.
“I love the relationships I form with clients and knowing I am making a difference in helping people be able to participate fully in their lives”, Kelly said.
In addition to Occupational Therapy, Kelly also recently completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training, which will allow her to incorporate her love for yoga and breath-work into her therapy sessions. “Therapy is best when we incorporate a client’s own hobbies or interests. It makes sessions so much more meaningful, and often, people realize they can still do things they may have previously thought they couldn’t do any longer,” Kelly shared.
Kelly moved to Nashville with her family in late 2020. She has since started exploring all outdoor opportunities that Tennessee has to offer. Sharing the fun with her husband and their two children. She also loves the farmers markets, which fuels her love for cooking! Kelly is passionate about helping others and is ready to make a difference in you or your loved one’s life.
She is currently seeing clients in-person in the Nashville area and online throughout Tennessee and Missouri! Take a look at her therapist profile and schedule an appointment with her today!
