Welcome! I'm Shauna Young, OTR/L

About me

From an early age, I knew I wanted to be involved in the healing and rehabilitation process, as a health care provider.

After graduating from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s of Science in Education, I received a Master’s of Health Science in Occupational Therapy from the Medical College of Georgia (Georgia Health Sciences University.)   

 

I have been fortunate to work as an OT for hospitals ranked as top 10 for U.S. Rehab hospitals. 


At Craig Hospital:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury inpatient and outpatient rehab teams.
  • Collaborating regularly with community reintegration and Vocational Rehab specialists, and driving evaluators
  • Vision clinic leader- receiving mentorship in neuro-vision rehab, while working alongside a neuro-optometrist.

 At University of Colorado Hospital:

  • Senior Therapist on the acute rehab unit
  • Treating clients with complex medical conditions, multi-trauma injuries and neurological conditions/injuries
  • Fieldwork Educator of the Year 2015- Creighton University

I have taken many neurological continuing education courses, addressing vision, cognition, and upper extremity rehabilitation.  Some accomplishments include:

  • Earned Board certification in Physical Rehabilitation in 2015 
  • Certification in Neurologic Occupational Therapy:  Upper Extremity Motor Rehabilitation in 2021
  • Saebo trained/certified therapist

    My family and I moved back to North Carolina, to be closer to family and, now with 16 years experience, I formed Mountain Therapy Services LLC in order to serve clients with flexibility, creativity, and 1:1 personal care.  I hope to have the opportunity to work with you on your rehabilitation goals so that you can return to doing the activities that bring you joy and success!
