The Story of Three Rooker: When deciding on a name for the practice there were many that could work, but when Three Rooker popped into our heads it was all over. Three Rooker as many of you will know is a popular island hang out here in Pinellas County. For us, this island is more than a fun place to hang out, it holds a special meaning. This is where we got engaged and where maternity photos were taken before the birth of our first child. For us these were life changing events that marked the next exciting and hopeful steps in our lives. That is exactly the feeling we want people to have when they think about Three Rooker Therapy. We want to signify a place that gives you hope and excitement while helping you take the next step in your life. Whether you are a new or expectant mother, have pelvic floor issues, or have a child with delays Three Rooker Therapy wants to be there to support and assist you in living your best life possible.
Meet Dr. Kari Rasmussen
Dr. Kari Rasmussen received her Bachelor's degree from the University of Florida, and then earned her Doctorate in occupational therapy from Nova Southeastern University. She has always been passionate about children and motherhood which was only amplified by the birth of her two children. Kari completed fieldwork rotations in both inpatient and outpatient settings learning about the various aspects of occupational therapy, and then completed her doctoral residency examining the role that occupational therapy could play in maternity care.
During this time Kari completed numerous hours of research and connected with women’s health advocates from across the globe. She was able to develop a course that could be offered to assist new mothers addressing physical, mental, and emotional changes associated with this transition. It is her hope that she will be able to implement this course here at Three Rooker Therapy as well as other maternity settings in the area. Kari has taken courses in pelvic floor therapy, is a certified educator of infant massage, and is in the process of becoming a pregnancy and postpartum corrective exercise specialist. She has experience working with children and adults with a wide range of conditions, and is always up for a challenge.
