Terra Scott

MSPT 

President/Owner

 

I was born and raised here in Colorado.  I graduated from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in 1999 with my master's in Physical Therapy.  I have always loved kids and through my clinical experiences at an outpatient pediatric clinic in Carbondale, CO and at Fletcher Miller School for special needs kids in Lakewood, CO, I found my passion in pediatric physical therapy.

After graduating, I worked for Jefferson County Schools at Molholm Preschool and at Fletcher Miller School for 2 years.  I worked with children ages 3 to 21.  I learned it was important to have excellent communication with the child's whole team of medical providers in order to help families be advocates for their child.  I also gained a lot of experience with medically fragile kids and adaptive equipment.  In 2002, I began working for various pediatric home healthcare agencies where I gained experience with children birth to 21 years old with many different diagnoses.  In 2003, I formed my own business, Milestone Pediatric Therapy Services, Inc., and joined a transdisciplinary Early Intervention team at Developmental Pathways where I am still an active member.

Since 2003, I have maintained contracts with three Community Centered Boards (RMHS, DP, & DDRC) which allows me to provide services to kids in much of Denver and the surrounding area.  I absolutely love the kids and families I work with.  I have experience working with kids with Down Syndrome, CP, Intrauterine Stroke, torticollis, plagiocephaly, SMA, prematurity, Cohen Syndrome, medically fragile children, Noonan Syndrome, hypotonia, dwarfism, less common chromosomal deletions, Juvenile RA, orthopedic conditions after injuries (leg fractures and surgeries), hip dysplasia, fibular hemimelia (prosthetic leg), general gross motor delays, Spina Bifida, and multiples.  I have enjoyed expanding my business over the years.  I currently employ Occupational, Physical and Speech Therapists who provide services for kids throughout Denver and the surrounding areas in Early Intervention and also at our pediatric therapy clinic located in Centennial.   I enjoy being a mentor to my team members and the PT students I take from the CU Denver PT program and Regis PT program.  I began having my own children in 2001.  In my free time, I enjoy being a mom to my four kids, running, hiking, and skiing.

I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. I have traveled and lived in 14 different states,and have more than one good story about each of them. Always asked what city did I like best, I graciously reply they all hold a special place in my heart.

Emalee Tarach

Front Desk Coordinator

Nice to meet you! I am 28 years young,originally born and raised in the sunny state of Florida. I am married with one child.Grayson is the light of our life and daily entertainment. We recently moved to Colorado when my husband accepted a
position within his company. Colorado has quickly grown to be our favorite place.Right out of high school, I knew I wanted to work in the medical field. I went to school to be an EMT, but later transitioned into a medical office setting. I was a medical
assistant for 8 years in orthopedics. During this time, our son was diagnosed with a genetic chromosome deletion causing major
developmental delays. We spent countless hours in a therapy clinic. Therapy became our second home. It was at this time, I realized where my passion was; with special children just like my son.I am a huge foodie! Food really does have my heart. I love baseball! Music is my zen,specifically older country music. I enjoy going on hikes with my family and our pups,(Jeter, Copper and Sadie).
