Krista Covell-Pierson, OTR/L, BCB-PMD, owns an innovative private practice, Covell Care and Rehabilitation, which aims to help adult and older-adult clients become safer, more independent and engaged in the home and community through a unique and one-of-a-kind model.

She works with students around the nation and internationally and was honored by Colorado State University as the Fieldwork Educator of the Year in 2013. The Coloradoan newspaper named Krista as one of their SuperWomen of the Year in 2015 for her contributions to the communities of Northern Colorado.

Krista serves as the Occupational Therapy Association of Colorado’s president and has been a speaker at the Colorado State Conference on Incontinence and Pelvic Health. She speaks regularly at community events, at local senior centers, at health fairs and for professional organizations.

In addition to her deep passion of working with her clients, Krista finds equal satisfaction in helping therapists develop their own private practices, cultivate their passions and thrive in their careers.
