Hi! I’m the primary course presenter and have developed the material over a 28-year period working in the non-profit and for-profit skilled nursing facility settings. I remember what it was like being a new manager with limited resources and have set my practice around teaching and mentoring other Therapy Managers to ensure they have the tools they need to succeed!
Let me tell you how I got here. I was thrust into a Rehab Manager position for a 400-bed SNF when I was just 23 years old. Yikes! Honestly, I thought it would be temporary….help a facility in a bind until they could find someone else. Geriatrics wasn’t even my thing! But for those of you working with the geriatric population, you know how it goes…. once you start, you’re hooked! My residents became family and I wanted the best for every. single. one. of them. So not only did I stay, but I became a Board Certified Geriatric Clinical Specialist and continued practicing for the next 20 years, pouring my heart and soul into the geriatric population.
But over the years, the struggle was real. As a Rehab Director, 12-hour-days was the norm and trying to keep up with the rules was almost impossible. Every company had different rules and when asked why things needed to be done a certain way, no one seemed to know. I was determined to figure “the system” out and soon discovered the rules and regulations were hidden in plain sight. There were Manuals!! Who knew!! [This was in the early 90’s…so we are talkin’ real paper “manuals.”] The State Operations Manual for LTC and the Medicare Manuals for Part A and Part B became my bedtime reading, mostly now committed to memory. [Seriously..] In 1997, I read the entire Balanced Budget Act while on maternity leave, and memorized the nuts and bolts of the first Prospective Payment System and RUGs. [I know…]
My ability to find the answers made me the “go-to” resource for other Rehab Directors in my state, and over time, in surrounding states. It quickly became apparent that keeping up with all the changing rules and regulations would become a full-time job, a very necessary full-time job, as my peers across the country were not learning the information in school or on the job, yet their licenses were on the line for much of the resident treatment and billing in the SNF. In fact, many of my peers were being directed to perform activities in conflict with these “rules.”
I made the decision to shift my care-giver energy from focusing on my residents and my therapy team, to focusing on the therapy teams in multiple facilities. Still a care-giver at heart, ultimately serving residents in a round about way…by serving my therapy manager peers. My focus has always been on compliance and “doing the right thing,” and the years of teaching and consulting that followed have allowed me to put the information together for other therapists interested in the same. Over the years our practice has grown and now provides training, education and support to SNF Rehab Managers and therapists in all 50 states. Check out my bio to see why I’m the right person to assist you on your professional journey!
You CAN lead a facility to success using a compliance-based model!

Not sure if this Course Series is for you? These recent participants had positive things to say!
RG, California PT: I would definitely recommend this course series to others, such as new Rehab Managers, like myself. I have been a Rehab Manager for the past 1 year and it has been a tough journey. I was looking for a training course which could give me sufficient information to return confidently on a day-to-day basis, and also provide enough resources to refer back to when I had the time. Also, with the transition between RUG-IV to PDPM, it has been intimidating for a relatively new manager, like me, and this course has helped me best, to know what I really need to focus on. This course flawlessly explained and differentiated the two systems, and presented the right amount of data I needed for my position. Thank you!
TG, New York OT: I have recommended this site and services to colleagues! It was truly a great learning experience and I will take many more courses with you! THANK YOU!!!
KC, New York PT: I have 100% confidence in Montero Therapy Services and the information that you present, in courses such as this or when I email a question. You are a vital resource for me, and I am a stronger Director of Rehab because of your assistance. Thank you!
AH, Minnesota DOR: I have already recommended you to several other department leaders within the industry! Thank you for all your hard work and continuously offered in-depth knowledge on the areas of this industry that at times can be so overwhelming to learn/apply within real clinic settings. Already looking forward to the next course!
KH, New York OT: We have transitioned from contract to in-house and I am the Rehab Director. I am overwhelmed and this course provided me with greater confidence and sense of control.
MD, New York OT: Absolutely a great foundation for new Rehab Directors, and a great review for more seasoned directors.

“I’ve been a Rehab Manager for 20+ years and I still had many “A-ha” moments!”
“Met my expectations and more! I wish I could bring you back to my facility.”
