Professional Bio: Katie Swinson is a real estate agent with an occupational therapy background helping individuals of all abilities find the home that serves them best. An individual’s physical environment has a large impact on one’s physical, mental, social, and emotional health. As an OT, Katie is trained to analyze each client’s current level of functioning and environment to determine the best recommendations to optimize each client’s functional performance. Katie specializes in helping older adults age in place as her passion lies with the older adult community.

Before combining OT and real estate, Katie provided occupational therapy services to older adults in their homes. Often the way her clients’ homes were configured contributed to falls or dependence on caregivers which led to a cycle of hospitalizations and rehab. Wanting to break the cycle, Katie found a path forward in real estate. Katie received her Masters of Occupational Therapy in 2015 from Towson University and still practices as a geriatric OT today. As a licensed realtor, Katie is able to help clients throughout the Baltimore/Harford area.
