Upon completion of graduate school, Kaylin accepted a position with the Recovery Court program as a Mental Health Court case manager while also providing OT services. Through this avenue, Kaylin was able to advocate for a full time OT position serving all of the Recovery Courts in Rutherford County. This is one of the first OT positions of its kind in the country.Since then, Kaylin has started her own business, Mind The Gap Therapy & Consulting, with her husband Dakota, focusing on integrative mental health care for their community.
