Meet Our Staff
Brett Duffey is a true North Carolinian from Lewisville, NC. Following High School, he was an Air Traffic Controller in the United States Marine Corps until April of 1989 when he survived a 12 story fall. Doctors diagnosed Brett with less-than 5% chance to live. He was in a coma for six weeks, paralyzed on his right side for nine months, and spent 13 months in five different hospitals. Brett has had seven operations to date. This turn-of-events lead him on the path to become a Therapist.
As Brett regained his physical and cognitive function, he was able to turn his attention towards finding a career. It only made sense that he chose a career in Occupational Therapy…where he would be able to help others, just as he had been helped. After five years of college, he received a BS Degree in Occupational Therapy from Lenoir-Rhyne College in 1998. He was on the Honor Roll and the National Dean’s List.
To date, Brett has experience working with a variety of patients/diagnoses in numerous settings including five Hospitals, Acute Care, Long-term Care, Outpatient Rehab, Hand Therapy, and Home Care. Brett has spent the last 13 years of his career focusing on neuropathy and neurological disorders. He has seen over 3000 patients with neurological diagnoses.
Brett brings his unique experience as BOTH a patient and as a Therapist to provide the most appropriate and compassionate therapy to ensure EVERY patient leaves the Clinic at their highest expected level of recovery.
Tayler Saxton is a graduate from Winston-Salem State University where he received his Master of Science in Occupational Therapy and Complete Rehab is thrilled to welcome him to the team!
Before beginning my journey to becoming an Occupational Therapist, I received my Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology and also studied Kinesiology at Campbell University. After receiving my bachelor’s degree, I had the pleasure of working as an Exercise Physiologist specializing in orthopedics and amputations in Fayetteville, NC. As an Exercise Physiologist, I also worked with patients through the Wounded Warrior Project which ultimately led me to pursue a career in Occupational Therapy due to the individualized and personal care the profession allows therapists to provide to their patients.
I love getting to know each and every one of my patients and strive to provide the best care possible. In my free time, I love exercising and wood working. I have a personal goal to one day become the next American Ninja Warrior!
Candice Simpson is a graduate from Winston-Salem State University where she received her Master of Science in Occupational Therapy.
Prior to beginning my journey to Occupational Therapy, I received my Bachelor of Science in Human Nutrition and Dietetics from UNCG in 2014. During my senior year, I spent time observing my younger sister receiving therapy, as well as my mother, and I knew Occupational Therapy was for me. I love being able to help others improve their quality of life while providing meaningful and individualized care.
I live in Mount Airy with my husband and daughter. We have one dog and too many cats. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, exercising, and baking desserts.
