Becca was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. She attended Xavier University for her undergraduate and graduate courses for Occupational Therapy. She met my husband while attending Xavier who was in Army ROTC at the time. They are both Cincinnati natives and enjoy visiting home often. Becca has been an Occupational Therapist for 4.5 years. Due to her husband's career, she has moved and lived in Ohio, Tennessee, Georgia, and North Carolina working in a variety of settings. She began her career in the schools and expanded her experience to outpatient pediatric clinics, adult inpatient rehab, adult behavioral health, adult inpatient acute care, and nursing homes. Becca's passion is pediatrics - though she likes to keep her options open and be flexible as she moves around the country. She enjoys being active, does CrossFit and loves to explore the outdoors, particularly near a lake or ocean. She has one pup named Roebling who is an Airedale terrier, and she is currently due in January with their first littlest addition to the family!
Ryleigh Oefinger is a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant who completed her program at St Catherine’s University in 2022 with an interest in pediatrics. Ryleigh is from the Fayetteville area, along with her family. She is excited to join the SMSS team and to continue to gain experience in this field of OT. Ryleigh has always loved working with children and helping them gain confidence, independence, and the skills needed to be successful in their endeavors. Ryleigh loves spending time with her family and friends, reading fantasy novels, and doing puzzles.

Emily Bradshaw is a Physical Therapist who received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Medical University of South Carolina in 2009. Originally from the Charleston, SC area, Emily now resides in Spring Lake, NC with her military husband, son, daughter, and rambunctious dog. Emily started her career in Outpatient Neuro Rehab and was able to make the switch to Pediatrics after a year. She has been in the Pediatric setting since then with experience in Early Intervention, Outpatient, and Home Health settings. Pediatrics truly is the best and she feels it's an environment where she is constantly challenged, motivated to learn, and never grow too big to have fun! Her passion lies in meeting families wherever they are, being a source of encouragement, and helping them to be excited and expectant for their child's future development. She is DMI Intro A certified and plans to pursue further treatment levels.
In her free time Emily enjoys traveling with her family, going to the beach, staying active, and watching her kids compete in their sports - baseball and competitive cheer.
