Because I’m Happy!

In the midst of moving to our new clinic location (happy) I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the year that has passed (happy).  Foundational Concepts turned one recently, on March 18, 2014 to be exact!  All the thoughtful processing, dreaming “big”, hard work, worry and care that went into opening our very own business has grown into a thriving practice.  I could not be more grateful. I could not be happier…like a room without a roof!

I have to begin with a very BIG thank you to Jenn, my business partner and dear friend. Had she not been sitting next to me one day,  and at the same time both said “we could do this on our own”,  the thought would still be just a dream. I would never have done this alone. Jenn is such a fantastic business partner.  She is a terrific clinician.  She is a great friend.  I am so blessed to be a part of this practice with her.

I am so thankful to all the wonderful physicians, psychologists, chiropractors and other healthcare providers who trust in us to care for their patients and help them on their road to wellness.  There are many options for physical therapy but you choose to send them our way, and for that I am grateful.  Both Jenn and I work hard to provide our patients with the best experience, and the highest quality of care. We combine years of experience with current evidence and a strong passion for what we do.  I appreciate the providers who recognize this and allow me to be a part of these patient’s healing path.

I am thankful for my husband, Sam and for Jenn’s husband Mike.  They have spent countless hours helping us along the way from financials to this website, to putting together furniture and taking the kids off our hands so we could work.  Their unconditional support from the start is phenomenal.  From day one, when i first mentioned to Sam what Jenn and I had been thinking I never heard “No”.  Your trust and willingness to take this risk with us is proof of your love and support for us.  I could not be more grateful, for there is no way I would be here without you.

I am thankful to every patient I have seen not just over this past year, but over my entire career. I learn more from you than can be taught in any textbook or course. I am grateful for your trust in me to help you find answers to your pain and dysfunction.  I am grateful you choose me to be a part of your team along the roadmap to better function and quality of life.  I enjoy each of your smiles, tears, and worries and I am humbled that you have shared them with me.  I love that I am able to lend a helping hand, a listening ear, a laugh, or a tissue along the way.  Thank you, Thank you for allowing me to really enjoy what I do.

Another HUGE thank you goes to Sushma Patel, owner of Bodies in Motion and Physical Therapist for allowing us the opportunity to open our practice with very little risk and overhead by sharing her space for the year.  She opened her PT clinic to us, allowed us use of the equipment, and her office staff and truly made us feel at home. We are forever grateful to you for helping us start off successfully.  We will absolutely find a way to “Pay it Forward” in some fashion as our practice grows. We learned from you and are so thankful for your generosity.

Last, I am thankful for all of those that I have met along the way this far in my career. Other therapists from whom I have learned, professors, researchers and students, have shaped my clinical career tremendously.  My dear friends who support me and love me and listen, you are amazing.  My three beautiful children who don’t understand now why this is so exciting and important to me, but will I hope when they grow up see what an accomplishment this is.  I hope most of all they see the importance of hard work, and pursuit of happiness and what it brings to your life.   My parents who have always shown support and love in my life, thank you.

Happy Birthday Foundational Concepts!
