I’m glad you asked. Pull up a chair and let’s chat!
After graduating from Marquette University in 2005, I always assumed that I would continue to work in a traditional rehab clinic setting as a physical therapist for the REST of my LIFE. I LOVED my job as a physical therapist (well, except for the never-ending paperwork that is!!)
However, after I started a family, I didn’t want to work crazy, unpredictable hours anymore.
I didn’t want to miss out on family time on the weekends.
I didn’t want to miss important holidays simply because I was working ALL.THE.TIME. I desperately wanted a more flexible schedule so that I could be there for my kids.
I felt stuck in my current position and deep down inside I knew that there is something MORE that I was supposed to be doing…but I just couldn’t figure out what that something was… yet. Of course, I could always advance in my career to a management position…BUT that would mean MORE long days, MORE time away from my family, and LESS flexibility in my schedule. Uhhhh…yeah, thanks, but NO THANKS!
SO... I decided to stay home with my kids.
TIME is something we can NEVER get back-- so I enjoyed every minute, every milestone, and every cuddle that I was lucky enough to be home for. PLUS, I got to continue my work as a physical therapist on a schedule that *I* chose around my family's (ever changing) schedule!
The stay at home mom and pool therapist life was great, but I still felt like there was SOMETHING missing!
Going back to work in a traditional physical therapy setting was always an option, but along with returning to a regular work schedule came ALL of the reasons that I had left in the first place.
I KNEW that I wanted:
So, when the opportunity presented itself to start my own business, work from home, be my own boss, and set my own schedule... utilizing my true passion of SERVING others…I was ALL IN.
I wanted to help people in a bigger way. Make a bigger IMPACT in the world. And here was my chance.
So I took it and ran.
And HERE I AM. I have become my own boss, building a business while my girls are at school or asleep, doing something that I love AND have a passion for.
Leading by example.
Living with a purpose.
Happy to sit down and “go to work”.
I have been given this GIFT of a platform to make a BIG difference in the lives of the people I meet…starting with education FIRST.
I believe that self-care is NOT selfish.
I believe that we have the power to heal our bodies with movement.
I believe in BALANCE, consistency, and progress over perfection when it comes to leading the life YOU choose.
I am all about dreaming big, working hard, and surrounding myself with good people.
I’m a wife and the proud mom of two feisty little ladies.
I am NOT a morning person, but I get up early Every.Single.Day. (Yep, weekends too--see above!)
I have a soft spot for pizza, reality TV, yoga pants, and I guess it's a TIE between wine and margaritas.
