I am a mentor, daughter, wife, mother, friend, volunteer, creative and educator. I am also curious and have a passion for discovering the best solutions to any situation. I have put these skills to good use throughout my life.
As a curious child I often asked why things happened and worked hard to accomplish my goals from a middle school theater program assistance director, all the way to a double major in dance and chemistry. Resulting in me pursuing a career in the healthcare field as a Physical Therapist.
After a few years as a physical therapist, I started to feel disconnected, unsupported, and frustrated at work. I thought my frustrations were due to lack of my physical therapy skills, so I started looking for ways to improve my physical therapy skills, through continue education opportunities. I learned a lot which my patience benefited from however these new skills decrease my frustrations. I started to realize that some of my frustration came from the processes and policies of my employer and of the healthcare industry. So, I changed my focus, I spend years working on process improvements, with my employer. Yet, I still found myself disconnected, unsupported and frustrated by aspects of my career. Worse yet, I started to realize these feelings about work were starting to affect my family life. I was losing myself.
One night after work, I had rushed home to my husband and our two children. I remember this night so well, I can still picture it. The kids were playing games on the floor with their father, my husband. They were having so much fun, laughing and playing. Both my children were so happy to see me, they ran to me with hugs. My daughter, my oldest, told me I had missed dinner and their game. “It is now time to get ready for bed mommy.” She told me. I was exhausted and I felt guilty for missing dinner again. I was at the end of my rope. In that moment I had so many feelings. I was exhausted, frustrated with work issues that seemed to be getting worse instead of better and I felt so guilty for not being able to spend time with my family, I wanted so badly. I was sacrificing time with my family to care for my patient’s and complete the paperwork connected to their care.
As the kids settled into their bedtime show. I gave them kisses on their heads and went upstairs to change. Instead of changing I sat down on the edge of my bed, and just started crying and crying hard. I had everything I wanted; a career that I had worked hard to achieve, a loving husband, two healthy and happy children, yet I was miserable.
I could hear my children, downstairs laughing as their father worked on settling down for the night. There I was, sitting on the edge of my bed still in my work clothes crying. I was wondering how things have gotten so out of control. I was exhausted, frustrated, guilty, angry, disconnected, unsupported and lost. I couldn’t be there for my family, my patients or myself. This was not the life I had envision when I started graduate school to become a physical therapist!
After some time passed, through my tears a thought came to me, Life is not supposed to be this way. I knew in my heart and soul that; I was not put on this earth to be miserable.
It was in this moment, red eyed, with tears still streaming down my face, I made the commitment to change. To figure out how to live my life filled with happiness, joy, purpose, and peace. I wanted to learn ways to manage stress effectively and kick the negative emotions I was feeling.
