We have been fortunate enough to have had Kori involved in Quinn's therapy needs for the last four years. It seems impossible to explain our gratitude....

"...the respect, and the appreciation we have for Kori in a paragraph. In my opinion, the best therapists are those who have high expectations, who have a great amount of knowledge, and who make the child feel like therapy is playful fun. Kori goes above and beyond that when it comes to our daughter. Working with Kori has benefited Q tremendously. Q has improved on sensory issues, core and upper body strength, listening and writing skills, dressing, general motor skills, and communication skills. She has learned to follow a visual schedule and also has learned that she is expected to do what is asked of her. On top of that, Kori also helps us, as parents, deal with struggles at home. I can mention any problem and she as a list of suggestions ready for us to try. Those suggestions help Q feel better and they also relieve the frustration it can cause our family at times. After the last four years, I consider Kori an exceptional occupational therapist, an amazing parent mentor, and someone who truly wants the best for my daughter, whatever it may take. We are lucky to have her in our lives."
When I learned Kori was going to offer private occupational therapy services I could not get Trinity on her schedule fast enough....

"...Of all the occupational therapists we have worked with, it is only Kori who has been able to get Trinity to make the most progress, from improving her abilities to perform acts of daily living such as dressing and putting shoes and socks on, to her fine motor skills, and neurological abilities.
Kori saw something special in Trinity eight and a half years ago. She believed in her. She had faith that Trinity would become great. She was committed to helping her make progress. I cannot, nor do I want to imagine, how much further behind Trinity would be had Kori become a part of our therapy family.
Our story with Kori does not end with Trinity. The same year that Trinity started therapy with Kori, Tripp was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma, a rare childhood cancer of the sympathetic nervous system. Until then, Tripp’s primary delay was his speech. But over the years, he required multiple major surgeries, frequent minor surgeries, years of chemotherapy, painful antibody therapy and radiation. It all took a tremendous toll on Tripp’s body. His core became weaker than Trinity’s. He developed neuropathy which led to toe walking. His balance was nearly non-existent. His sensory system was often out of whack. He was impulsive, had difficulty with following directions and with his memory. When our schedule allowed, Kori added Tripp to her hippotherapy schedule. His needs and deficits became so obvious! When she started private occupational therapies services, we spent one summer focusing on getting Tripp back on track. While his core remains weaker than his peers and his impulsiveness is still present, at his last evaluation, he did not even qualify for continuous private occupational therapy services. Her dedication to him at his weekly clinic visits and his hippotherapy sessions were enough to help improve his balance, coordination, motor planning, ability to follow directions and sensory needs. Kori also created various activities for home that could continue to help him improve.
Kori is a blessing to our family and to any family who has the privilege of working with her. I am forever grateful for what she has done for my children."
