Kimberly Mood, M.S. OTR/L

Owner and occupational therapist

While working as an Early Interventionist after college, Kimberly realized that she had a passion for empowering children and their families and chose to further her education to receive her Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy and certification. 

After years of helping children throughout the Rock Hill area, Kimberly’s dream of opening her own practice to continue supporting families through in home and clinic based therapy came to fruition and thus Carolina Therapy Solutions for Kids was born.

When she's not working, you'll find Kimberly with her husband Kevin and their two kids. She loves family time and, if "spare time" were a real thing, she'd love to be playing volleyball, rafting over whitewater rapids, or traveling.

"I am very passionate about my career as a COTA, and I am very excited about this field because it uses activities that are most important to people as the beginning and end goals of therapy. As I begin this journey as a COTA my goal is to communicate, facilitate, educate, and support all efforts into patient and family-centered care."

Leigh Anne Miller

Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (COTA/L)

Originally from Statesville, North Carolina, I have an extensive background working with children. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Special Education at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (go 49ers). I have since become a passionate therapist and advocate for children with disabilities as well as their families. I graduated from the Occupational Therapy Assistant program at Rowan Cabarrus Community College with high honors and earned an award for an adaptive equipment design and prototype at the state conference. 

 

When I’m not working, I enjoy being outdoors to camp, hike, kayak, and exploring new places with my husband and our dog. I enjoy sports of all types, watching them and participating in competitive games. When it comes to a new adventure, I never say no!

 

Occupational therapy has done more for me than I ever thought was possible. It's changed my life and I am excited to share this wonderful profession with the community of Rock Hill!

Lori Knight

Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (COTA/L)

Lori, originally from Orangeburg, South Carolina, graduated from Greenville Technical College in 2014 with her Associates Degree in Occupational Therapy Assistant.  Her niece, Zoe, has been her biggest inspiration, and is what sparked her interest in the therapy field.  As a child with Mosaic Down Syndrome, Zoe has shown Lori the impact this field has on the lives of children with special needs. She loves working with children, and think the world would be a lot better if we could all see things through their eyes.  

 

Lori is a huge Clemson fan and never misses a game during football season. She loves the outdoors, enjoys camping in the mountains or at the beach, and spending free time with her friends and family.

Kendra love being outdoors when she is not working. Along with her husband and daughter, she enjoys exploring new places, listening to live music, and spending as much time on the beach as possible. She also has a huge sports-loving family, which means if she's not watching a game on TV, she's probably at a local game cheering on a family member or her favorite team!
