Organizing an event is hard work. Pressure mounts especially when considering speakers. Often, the success of an event hinges on the quality and impact of the speakers selected (no pressure, right?). If the speakers you choose hit a home run, you’ve got yourself a great event. If they flop, you’ve got a dud.

I’m sure that you’re spending hours researching speakers to make sure you have the right fit for your event and audience. I hope this page makes it easy for you to gather the information you need to make an informed decision.

Thank you for checking us out and considering me. I am honored.

A Little Bit About Me (Rafael E. Salazar II, MHS, OTR/L)


I am the principal owner of Rehab U Practice Solutions. I’ve spent my clinical career working in a variety of rehab settings, mainly treating patients recovering from a variety of injuries and surgeries. I previously worked as the lead clinician in an outpatient specialty clinic at my local VA Medical center. I then worked as a healthcare management consultant, working on a large project for the State of Georgia’s Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities.

I’ve also taught as an adjunct faculty instructor at Augusta University’s Occupational Therapy Program. I’ve taught classes on Evidence-Based Practice, Applied Kinesiology, and Mental Health. I’ve also given lectures and presentations about the biopsychosocial model, licensing & regulatory issues, deinstitutionalization & community integration, career development, & trauma-informed care.

I currently serve as a Licensed Board Member on the GA State OT Board and have served on several committees for the National OT Board (NBCOT). I also serve as a board member on the Board of Directors for NBCOT. I continue to work as a consultant for the State of Georgia’s DBHDD, on a large project involving transitioning individuals out of State Hospitals.

I devote my time to writing, consulting, teaching, and speaking. My goal is to help healthcare clinics and organizations deliver uniquely impactful patient experiences by improving service delivery through training & advisement.
