Occupational Therapists

Aline White, OTR/L

A Huntsville area local, Ms. Aline received her Bachelor's degree in Rehabilitation and Disability Studies from Auburn University, where she graduated as College of Education Student Marshal. Ms. Aline continued her education at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where, in 2019, she graduated with honors with a Master's degree in Occupational Therapy.


Ms. Aline is now happily working at the SpOT Clinic to provide occupational therapy services to the Huntsville area. It is a tenet of Ms. Aline's professional mission to provide occupational therapy services that consider all aspects of the individual's occupational performance, including the person, their functional environments, and all valued and necessary occupations in which the individual wants or needs to participate.


Kristi Phillips, COTA

Mrs. Kristi graduated from the Occupational Therapy Assistant program at Wallace State Community College in 2019. She received her certification as an Occupational Therapy Assistant in early 2020.

Mrs. Kristi discovered her love for Occupational Therapy while working in a preschool. She has always had a passion for helping others which is very apparent when you see her working with the children of The SpOT Clinic.


Mrs. Kristi lives in Guntersville.  She is married and has 2 children (ages 6 & 16) and one furbaby (Belle, a goldendoodle) who just turned a year old. I love my job and spending time with my family. 


Mary Shumate, COTA

Mrs. Mary attended Wallace State Community College graduating with an associates degree in Occupational Therapy. She has been practicing in OT for 20 years in all areas from early intervention to skilled nursing facilities. Fifteen of those years have been in school based therapies focusing on physical, sensory and cognitive disorders.


She and her husband, Josh Shumate, have been married over 13 years and reside in Union Grove. They have two children, Anderly (daughter/12) and Joshua (son/8) who keep them busy with school and sports. Their family enjoys attending and volunteering at their church and spending time on their farm with all of their hooved and feathered family members.


Mrs. Mary is incredibly thankful for her profession in Occupational Therapy and the opportunity it has given her to serve others.
