Therapist Spotlight: Kimberly Westbrook

I am currently a Team Manager and Occupational Therapist for Therapy 2000 and have been with the company since June 2011. I graduated from Texas Women’s University in 1982 and have practiced as an OT non-stop since. I have worked in adult home health, in-patient and out-patient rehab, schools and pediatric home health. My favorite practice area has been pediatrics.

I have 4 grown children and 3 grandchildren, the last, Jonathan Patrick Westbrook being born 3-18-16. Nothing makes me happier than spending time with my family. I came from a family of 5 brothers and sisters and we all remain very close. I just came back from spending Easter with them in Rockwall/Garland area.

I was born in New Orleans and my mom went into labor on Mardi Gras Day. I went to Mardi Gras every year until I was 21. Back then, the focus was family and food, not the debauchery seen today.

The hardest thing I’ve ever done I think is going through treatment for breast cancer. I finished chemo and radiation a year ago in March. I wish I could say I bounced back but it has been an uphill climb to feel good again. I consider myself a treatment survivor! I found strength in weakness and my faith was tested but I found the Lord to be very faithful and gentle during that time. I scheduled my chemo on Thursday mornings because I knew I could finish out the day at work, make it through Friday and crash on Saturday and Sunday. My church family showed up on a January Saturday morning last year and moved my family to our new home in about 2 hours! I didn’t have the strength to move a single box that day. I found out how friends and family can get you through almost anything and that if I focused on seeing my therapy kids, I could make it through the nausea and fatigue better than if I stayed home in bed.

Therapy 2000 has stretched my skill level to new heights! Being a Team Manager is probably the most challenging thing I have done as a therapist but I absolutely love working with my team! I also enjoy mentoring and teaching new grads and assistants. I am thankful for Therapy 2000 calling me to be accountable in my documentation. I’ve spent countless years submitting paperwork that I felt no one read and now I feel that nothing gets past Annette!! Haha! Darla has honed my management skills by her excellent example. The people at T2000 are like family and I always look forward to gatherings with my coworkers!
