Courtney Bruck Carsman

Life is great out west in Tahoe! Evan, my husband, and I bought a house a couple years ago out here in Incline Village, NV, and had a beautiful baby boy 15 months ago. I can't believe he is 15 months! I worked in an outpatient clinic in Reno and commuted from our home for 4 years until I had Caleb. Once I had Caleb I started by own business, kiddOTherapy, LLC. I do all home visits with children of all ages. I also contracted with Easter Seals so that I could treat the early intervention kids. I am super busy with work, and feel like there is so much work out here in Nevada. It is awesome! I do all of my own billing, and am actually looking to hire some help here soon.
