but my answer has always been and always will be no. Mothers and fathers work for us in order to have a career and a life with their family, and our weekends are integral to maintain that balance. We try to be as accommodating to our patients as we possibly can, but we all have families who deserve our time too. order to spend quality time with my kids. But I can’t say I do it alone. I have a lot of help from my husband and our “village” of family members who are willing to come alongside me when I need them. There are times when I have to stay late at the office and I need someone to pick up the kids or take them to practice. Thankfully, their grandmas and aunts will happily help me out. And if one of them needs a favor, I gladly step in to help them out as well. On Mother’s Day, I am reminded of all the outstanding women in my family who constantly impress and amaze me with their love and dedication to our family — something we all learned from our moms. I want to wish all moms out there a happy Mother’s Day. To my team, thank you for all that you do for our office. You work so hard both in the clinic and at home, and we appreciate you so much.

But after When planning my future, I was sure of two things: I wanted to have a successful career in physical therapy, and I wanted to have a family someday. My husband and I purposely waited for eight years after we were married to have children so that I could finish school and have a couple years of experience as a physical therapist before I took some time off work for having babies. At age 30, we finally decided that “someday” was here, and we were ready to bring new life into the world. Both of my goals became reality. Although I had an idea of what the lifestyle of a working mom looks like, life is unpredictable, and it’s been much different than I first imagined. However, I wouldn’t change any of it for the world.

I am done seeing patients, I have to focus on being a great leader for our team and taking care of the nitty-gritty details of the business. Thankfully, I have my husband right by my side, and we tackle everything together. Who knows how busy I would be if we weren’t in this together? I start my first patient at 6:00 every morning so that I can get a full day in and still get home and be with my kids after they return from school. I am constantly on the go, but it’s a lifestyle I love. I am not the only working mom at Vital Care Physical Therapy. In fact, most of our team is made up of working moms. Since I know firsthand what it takes to balance a family and a career, I’ve made it our goal to promote a healthy work-life balance for our team. Many of our patients request weekend appointments,
