Dallas Based Speaker Cortney Baker
In 2003, Dr. Baker founded KidsCare Therapy. After experiencing the growth and success of the company, Cortney decided to follow her dream of obtaining her doctoral degree. She enrolled in Pepperdine University’s nationally ranked Organizational Leadership program beginning in the summer of 2012.
However, on September 18, 2012, Cortney suffered a massive stroke in 2 places at the age of 37. She took the fall 2012 semester off to recover, but in true Cortney Baker fashion, she bounced back and re-enrolled in same program for the Spring 2013 session. She completed her doctoral degree in 2015.
