About Carolyn & Therapeutic Miles

Hi! I’m Carolyn. Here’s a little background info about me:

In 2011, I had moved to Washington, DC as a new, traveling occupational therapist, with the intention to fulfill my six month assignment and move on to the next city. I started Therapeutic Miles to chronicle my journey around the country as I moved from city to city.

And then I fell in love…with this city, with the people, and with a guy. After dating for a few years, we decided to put down roots in the DC suburbs with our two pups. We got married in 2014 and in 2016 expanded our family to include a happy little boy, Chase. We welcomed another boy, Carter in 2017 and most recently, our third son, Camden in March 2019!

I’ve always been an avid social media user and frequently found myself posting “a day in the life” posts….mostly relatable mom stuff, practical baby activities and products and DIY/home inspiration.  Some of my friends and family found them interesting and entertaining enough to push me towards blogging. And so Therapeutic Miles was re-born.

My blogging journey has transformed from a single girl bouncing around the U.S. to a woman in her early thirties navigating modern motherhood, marriage and everything in between. Now as a postpartum recovery specialist running my new practice, Postpartum Living, I try to share more about pregnancy, postpartum and motherhood.

Why “Therapeutic Miles?”

I see life as a series of moments, or miles traveled, that shape who we are.  Those miles could be milestones like graduating, having a baby, or landing a dream job. As an occupational therapist, I’m always encouraging clients/patients to own their personal story, their journey and essentially, their “miles”.

So there you have it…the vision, the journey and my therapeutic miles. Hope you enjoy reading!
