Speaker:  Kaylin Flamm, MSOT, OTR/L

Kaylin attended the University of Southern Indiana where she earned her bachelor's degree in Health Administration with a concentration as an Occupational Therapy Assistant. She then worked as a neurorehabilitation Occupational Therapy Assistant and a Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Advocate in Florida. After 3 years, Kaylin moved to Nashville, TN to complete her master's degree in Occupational Therapy. She continued her work with survivors of domestic and sexual assault during this time and became the first Occupational Therapy intern with the Mental Health Court of Rutherford County. Upon completion of graduate school, Kaylin accepted a dual position with the Recovery Court program as a Mental Health Court case manager and Occupational Therapist. Since then, Kaylin has worked to establish OT as an essential part of the Recovery Court treatment team and a full time OT position was developed.  In addition to working for the Recovery Court program, she is an Adjunct Professor for South College and the Mental Health Chair of the Tennessee Board of Occupational Therapy.
