TRENT BROWN, MOT, OTR/L, is a licensed
occupational therapist in Utah and Nevada and nationally certified through NBCOT.
A graduate from the University of Utah with both a Bachelor's and Master's in
occupational therapy, Mr. Brown has worked in transitional rehab, acute care,
skilled nursing, and home health for 10 years. His Master's thesis, "Performance
of ADL's, functional activity, mobility, and confidence levels following total

passion. Mr. Brown has centered his practice on core research, exercise, and
activity to promote safety and outcomes during functional mobility and activity
with adult and geriatric populations. He has received APTA approval as a
certified continuing education presenter on the topic of core, balance, falls,
and functional mobility for the Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado chapters
in addition to the OT associations in those states. Mr. Brown recently completed
a term as vice president for the Utah Occupational Therapy Association (UOTA),
where he helped co-author the new Utah Occupational Therapy Practice Act. In
conjunction with his clinical practice, Mr. Brown also teaches at the University
of Utah as an adjunct professor since 2007 and, most recently, was a keynote
speaker at the annual UOTA conference.
