Shari Kendrick, Director of Quality Assurance/Clinical Documentation Compliance Auditor
I knew I wanted to work with children when I had my second daughter & I knew I wanted to find a place of employment that valued children and family as much as I did. I have never worked with a company that truly values every family dynamic as much as Carolina Pediatric Therapy does. We love are own children, absolutely, but we also love our co-workers children and the families we serve children like our own! I would not be the mom I am today without my CPT family!! Children are just beginning to live their lives and that is exciting and overwhelming all swooshed together! While each one is in a different stage they are all just starting to find their way into the world! To hold even a tiny piece of making it the very best life it can be for them and their families makes my life feel more complete and worth every day I show up for them in whatever role I play. I've held many different positions with CPT over the last 15 years and I have been honored to serve in each and every one of them! It feels really Amazing to be apart of a team that makes a very impactful and real difference in so many beautiful young lives!! My hobbies are reading, writing, family, walking my two 4 legged girls, everything flowers, growing rare succulents and gardening. I have been with Carolina Peds since 2006. It's my family, a pretty amazing family, that walks through and along side of each other as a team, but most importantly walks with our families in our own communities who are navigating some of the most challenging times in their lives. Then to be so blessed to have the opportunity to experience some of the very best outcomes parents never thought of as possibilities, but dreamed of and prayed for, the chance to see their most precious treasures in life grow and succeed in every possibility they so deserve to have!! I'd say that's a pretty awesome job perk :)
Emma Kendrick, Scheduler
Graduate of South College. I first knew I wanted to work with children when my favorite part of high school was being apart of the Special Education program. My experience includes working in the customer service industry since I was in high school. I love working with children because even though I am not hands on in their treatment, I still feel like I am making a difference when I schedule a child for services they need to improve their quality of life. My hobbies are going kayaking, hiking with my husband and dogs, painting, and reading a good book. I have been with Carolina Peds since 2019 and it is a family based company and they show that in everything they do.

I received Physical Therapy as a child and understand the importance of therapy and the impact it can have on a child's life. I love working with children because they bring me so much joy! Working with Carolina Peds since 2019 everyone is more like family here at CPT. We are Team Players and out to help children and families reach their full potential with the services we provide.
