Why start DotCom Therapy?
We have been developing this company about a year, but we officially
founded it in March. We, Rachel and I, wanted to come up with a solution
for this problem we had identified. We went to graduate school together
and were research partners. She was working in a neuro clinic here in
Springfield and I was working in the education field down in Branson,
and we really saw a need. There is a lack of therapists in general.
Patients who come through the hospital and need a specific therapy
– whether it be rehab after a stroke or voice therapy related to
Parkinson’s disease – the doctor recommend to them, there aren’t enough
therapists to fill the need. The neuro clinic she worked for had a huge
wait list. I was seeing kids who I couldn’t actually make it to see.
They would be receiving their speech therapy from a teacher and I would
just be supervising.
