About Shauna Young, MHS, OTR/L
From an early age, I knew I wanted to be involved in the healing and rehabilitation process, as a health care provider. After graduating from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s of Science in Education, I received a Master’s of Health Science in Occupational Therapy from the Medical College of Georgia (Georgia Health Sciences University.)
I have been fortunate to work as an OT for hospitals ranked as top 10 for U.S. Rehab hospitals.

My family and I moved back to North Carolina, to be closer to family and, now with 15 years experience, I formed Mountain Therapy Services LLC in order to serve clients with flexibility, creativity, and 1:1 personal care. I hope to have the opportunity to work with you on your rehabilitation goals so that you can return to doing the activities that bring you joy and success!
