Brian Shaw, OTR, Director of Therapy Operations
I love being able to make a difference in people’s lives whether physical, emotional or spiritual.  I believe standing up for patients that need an active voice is the greatest service we can provide from an individual and facility level.

The reason I love OT is that it focuses on the functional capabilities of the patient and that allows us to center our therapy on what the patient desires to accomplish on a daily basis.  Inpatient rehab at Mountain Valley gives us the opportunity to focus on a variety of these needs along with community based activities.

I received my bachelor’s degree in exercise science from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona and a master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of St. Augustine in St. Augustine, Florida.
