Hillary Cartner Lee – MTBC Music Therapist
Jim Cartner introduced his daughter Hillary Cartner Lee a MTBC Music Therapist. Hillary provided a very engaging program on the benefits of music therapy which is her calling. She spoke about the clinical evidence of the difference it makes for people with developmental and cognitive disabilities. She provides cognitive and physical activities with social interaction using reality orientation through the vehicle of music. Hillary uses music as a motivator to facilitate positive change in the lives of people of all ages who face life through challenging circumstances.
Hillary engaged our club through her songs and movement including a fun song which she made up using words provided by our club members. The song, “Dick’s Pants” is sure to be a top 10 hit!
Hillary holds a BA in Music Therapy from Appalachian University where she also minored in Psychology. She is a board certified MTBC and is supporting the work in NC to have a professional licensure for music therapists.
