President and owner, Greenfield

Rehabilitation Agency



Employees: 521

When Kate Brewer started at Greenfield Rehabilitation Agency 14 years ago, she helped grow the company from having contracts with 17 skilled nursing facility partners to more than 50 today. Greenfield Rehabilitation provides physical, occupational and speech therapy services in Wisconsin and the Midwest.

Brewer has been instrumental in expanding the business to include home health services, outpatient services and pediatric therapy.

Her passion to lead and grow the company has created hundreds of jobs for therapy professionals and has provided physical, occupational and speech therapy services to children and seniors who need it to enhance their function and quality of life.

The company currently employs approximately 521 people.

“Kate works diligently to foster a warm corporate culture for her team, despite employees being spread out across the state of Wisconsin,” said Michelle Poole, executive vice president of Greenfield Rehabilitation Agency. “Kate’s transition into ownership of the business during her time with Greenfield Rehab has allowed her to create a dynamic and growing therapist-owned and -operated company that has been leading the way in rehabilitation services for over 50 years.”

In 2016, Brewer led the acquisition of Rehab Resources, a business that provided physical, occupational and speech therapy services to children.

The move was a landmark moment for Greenfield Rehabilitation that served to strengthen and diversify the company and prepare it for continued growth in the future.

“The diversification has opened new doors for growth and brought a new perspective and dynamic to the company,” Poole added.
