Teresa began her CRT career in 1991 as a customer service/sales rep for United Medical. Her career path promptly became her passion: she received her Resna ATS certification in 1995 and Resna ATP 3 years later. She then worked for HealthCare Source as an ATP in Memphis, TN. In 2001 she opened Glass Seating and Mobility in Memphis and quickly expanded into Alabama, Mississippi and Arkansas.
In 2011 Glass Seating was awarded the HME Excellence award for CRT. The following year, Teresa sold Glass Seating to United Seating and Mobility where she remained as Regional VP until she retired early in 2019 to spend more time with her family. But Teresa missed working with CRT clients, and a year later she started Freedom In Mobility in Huntsville, AL.
It is her mission - and that of her team - to create a stress-free process for clients, caregivers, and medical professionals in acquiring the specialized equipment tailored to individuals’ specific needs to maximize their health, function, and independence.
Mike's complex rehab experience began in 1994 and includes billing, accounting, sales, management, service technician, seating technician, and his current ATP position.

In August of 2021 Mike obtained his Seating and Mobility Specialist (SMS) certification.
Having trained and worked as a rehab technician, Mike has hands-on experience with device capabilities in determining what equipment best fits the needs of each client.
Mike is married and has 3 children. He states, “My children have only known me to be in this business; they are very aware of and comfortable with others in the community with disabilities and their needs.”
