Our History

TheraTree was formally known as Lynn Occupational Therapy owned by Dale Lynn, OTR/L who established the company in 2000. The family own and operated company provided OT services to the Owensboro Area community for 15 years before outgrowing it's name by offering speech and physical therapy services. The need for rebranding the business provided an opportunity for Jessica Hatfield, MS, OTR/L to purchase the company and create TheraTree to encompass the many services provided. Although ownership has change, Jessica and Dale continue to work together provide the best care for clients and a collaborative working environment for employees. Together Dale and Jessica have established an incredible relationship with area pediatricians as well as many families in the special needs community.
