Ours is among the most human of professions.
After years working for large, impersonal national rehabilitation companies, Maren and Christopher Boothby had had enough. They decided to focus their professional efforts on the real needs of school age children by forming a small company that had the flexibility, patience, focus and expertise to meet any therapeutic need.
At BTS, those same values are in place today. We make a difference by keeping the focus on the real needs of students, and the real capabilities of schools; we improve outcomes by carefully assessing needs and finding the right people with the skills to meet them.
We are still a relatively small company, with a team of 50 outstanding occupational therapists, speech therapists, teachers of the visually impaired, clinical support professionals, and an experienced business service team. We make sure that we never lose our emphasis on what schools and therapists specifically need to be successful.
As a school contracting with BTS, you will work with a dedicated team of highly qualified therapists within a framework of professional support. Boothby therapists simply become your therapists, active and professional members of your special education team that fit in so seamlessly with your staff that others may never know that they come from BTS.
As a therapist employed by BTS, you will know who makes the decisions that affect your career and we’ll know you, your spouse, kids and occasionally even your pet! It’s a nice blend between being small enough to know you and large enough to be able to offer you the work, pay, and benefits you need.
Do you need a flexible position, additional training, or clinical support that allows you to focus on your passion—serving children with special needs? Contact BTS today and let us demonstrate how we can help.
Meet our management team and administrative staff.
Maren Boothby, Founder, President
Maren Boothby, MS, CCC-SLP found her SLP niche working with middle and high school students throughout the state of New Hampshire. As the company grew, she mentored new therapists as they joined Boothby Therapy. Knowing them on both a professional and personal level has been one of the most rewarding aspects of her job. In recent years, Maren has taken on a consultative role with many school districts, helping them assess their needs and respond to changes in special education, including increasing classroom-based services and writing goals related to the Common Core.
Personally, Maren enjoys cooking, entertaining and travel with just some of her favorite destinations being Nicaragua, Chile, South Africa and anywhere she can dine on great local cuisine at a bargain price!

Jennifer McGreevy, Director of Company Partnerships
Jennifer McGreevy has the enviable position of being a trusted resource for both therapists and our school partners. It is Jennifer that therapists needing great placements and schools requiring experienced therapists turn to for that successful match. Having the ability to understand both the specific need defined by a unique caseload and the specific skills each therapist possesses allows Jennifer to make a great fit for both school and therapist.
Personally, Jennifer is the modern day “super mom” capable of working full time, supporting three children’s extremely busy sports and cultural arts schedules, while still finding time for travel with her husband David.
Kelly Dionne, Accountant
Kelly Dionne’s contributions to therapists and schools sometimes might be difficult to see.While she doesn’t provide direct services to any child she still “sees” each and every service through her role as primary interface between therapists documentation of each service provided and the school administrator’s need to justify service costs. While it’s not an easy job, Kelly’s attention to detail and ability to track data allows her to be a successful resource for therapists and schools.
Personally, Kelly has two daughters who continue to set new levels for academic achievement and a wonderfully supportive husband Roger (Someone has got to do the cooking and cleaning in the Dionne household!).
Jennifer Dutton, OTR, Related Services Manager
Jennifer Dutton is a tough act to keep up with. As one of our Related Services Managers Jennifer is the “All Knowing OZ” of Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy land.

If you ever wanted a professional therapy “Easy Button” you just need to meet Jen Dutton!
Heather Sydorwicz, SLP, Related Services Manager
Heather Sydorwicz is a NH girl from Dover who received her undergraduate and graduate Communication Disorders degrees from UNH. After completing her CFY at a clinic in Nashua, she worked at Auburn Village School serving children from 3-18 and treating the full range of speech and language needs seen in a typical NH school. Then, as often happens when you find the love of your life. . .it was time to move to be closer to his family and take the next step in her career at the Cleveland Clinic. Starting as a therapist for the Clinic’s well known Lerner School, Heather was able to develop her skills treating all ages of students with autism. Moving up the management ranks, Heather eventually not only saw significant growth in her students but also saw growth in the number of therapists she supervised, which eventually totaled 43! Although Heather’s first love is speech therapy, she returned to school to become a BCBA and she enjoys blending her knowledge as an SLP and a BCBA to support students and teams.
