Julie, smiling Executive Director and Billing Specialist, against a serene beach backdrop for Best Hope Therapy.

This woman does it all! From helping with marketing, editing copy for the website or marketing materials, ordering supplies to filing claims of Best Hope Therapy clients in Minnesota & Florida, this team would be nothing without her. Julie always has a smile on her face and is ready to pitch in and help Larry with whatever is needed. She even orders lunch! Julie is a proud Mom to 3 young adults and is originally from Florida. ​

Belgian Malinois dog named Lexi on a beach, titled Director of Pawsitivity, bringing joy to Best Hope Therapy.

This strong Belgian Malinois loves to “work”! While the rest of the team is seeing clients, billing out claims or typing on the keyboard, Lexi is relaxed, confident and guards the work being done to help The Best Hope Therapy team perform at its best. Her ears will often peak up or you might even see her tail curl up behind Larry’s chair during sessions. Since Lexi is a herder, she plays a huge role in gathering the team together for scheduled team meetings, events and get-togethers. In this picture, Lexi is on one of her many breaks from work. In her spare time, she enjoys bird watching, squirrel chasing and barking. Yep, she is a communicator. Lexi is an extremely important part of our team!.​
