Christopher has over 10 years of experience working as an occupational therapist (OT). He developed a passion for neurorehabilitation while working at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center from 2011-2017. During this time, he also co-founded GoTherapy, a non-profit dedicated to increasing rehabilitation access in West Africa. He spearheaded GoTherapy’s efforts to develop the Stroke Community Re-Integration Program (SCRIP) in Dodowa, Ghana.

Christopher noticed there was a shortage of neurorehabilitation specialists despite neurological conditions such as stroke and traumatic brain injury being leading causes of long-term disability. In 2019 he created Neurosuite, a mobile neurorehabilitation outpatient company to address this problem.

Christopher earned his B.S. in Exercise Science from the University of South Carolina in 2007 and his M.S. in Occupational Therapy from Howard University in 2010. Christopher is currently CEO of Neurosuite, a Neuroscience and Cognitive Science PhD candidate at the University of Maryland and adjunct OT professor at Howard University.
