Linda BrightLinda Bright, OTR/L, C/NDT, LSVT-BIG

"I have a passion for helping people regain their ability to do what they love to do and return to being active members of their family and community. I also have a passion for helping people regain motor control and function, especially regarding being able to use their arms and hands to in a purposeful way.

I am a native Oregonian and Portlander. I’ve lived all over the country, though. I like gardening and native plants. I have two teenage sons and a husband who is a meteorologist (not on t.v.). I have two dogs I love to walk!"

Bryan Jacobs Bryan Jacobs, OTR/L, CMES

"I am a native Oregonian who grew up in Corvallis. I met my wife Kristine while in the Philippines during our Peace Corps service. We moved to Memphis, TN in 2014 to allow for me to obtain my occupational therapy degree. While in Memphis, we married in 2016 and welcomed our daughter into the world in 2018. In 2019, we returned to Portland to be close to family and friends. I enjoy spending time outdoors including cycling and whitewater rafting, all things Blazers, playing board games and reading to my daughter with made up voices. The three of us and our dog Ender live in SE Portland."
