Jenny Jolley, MS, OTR/L has always loved babies and becoming a pediatric occupational therapist was the perfect opportunity to combine that passion with a profession. After OT school, she practiced internationally in Rome, Italy and Xining, China. Then returned to her hometown to open a one-of-kind therapy clinic with her sister, Carrie, focusing on early intervention and neurodevelopment. She created the development care model for their local NICU and uses neuroscience to inform her habilitative treatment method despite early brain damage. Specifically in the prevention of cerebral palsy. Jenny enjoys presenting in a sensory-based format to enhance the memorability of the learner’s experience.
Caroline Molder, MS, OTR/L is a pediatric occupational therapist. She's practiced in a variety of settings including public schools, private schools and out-patient clinics. In 2015, she and her sister opened a unique integrated community playground and therapy clinic in central Arkansas, with a focus on early intervention. She has a special interest in primitive reflex integration and the neuroscience behind early brain development. Becoming a mother inspired her and her sister to begin creating online course content for new moms with an emphasis on how to help babies develop successfully. This has grown into a weekly development show: Moms & Milestones, currently available on Youtube & Instagram. She is pursuing a certification in neurodevelopmental rhythmic movement.
