Balancing Family and Career with Martha Boiardt

Balancing Family and Career with Martha Boiardt

Thinking about starting a private practice to find more flexibility in your life? You’re going to love this episode! 

In this episode of Private Practice Success Stories, I sat down with Martha Boiardt, a Grow Your Private Practice student who started her private practice in 2020 after becoming a mom and wanting the flexibility to spend more time with her family. 

Martha talks about how she went from working for a private practice to starting her own! Starting her private practice gave her the flexibility and freedom she needed as a parent to care for her own children while continuing to serve the needs of children in her community. 

She also discusses the importance of parent coaching and her future plans to offer a support group to her clients’ families. 

Martha Boiardt, MS, CCC-SLP is a Speech-Language Pathologist based in Miami, FL. She became a practicing SLP in 2010, working in private practice, public schools, and specialized private schools. 

In 2014, she founded Miami Speech Therapy with the goal of running a mobile practice that focused on a family-centered approach for each client. When she is not working with clients in their homes and schools, she enjoys spending time with her husband, 3 children, and their pets Allie and Sunny. 


In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:


  • How Martha went from working at a private practice to starting her own
  • The benefits of having your own private practice
  • How Martha discovered the type of business owner she wanted to be
  • The types of clients she serves in her private practice
  • How Martha is incorporating parent coaching into her practice
  • A fantastic way to get referrals for your business
  • Martha’s plan for the future of her private practice
  • The power of collaborating with other professionals 


I hope you enjoyed this conversation with Martha! I love how she talked about how her priorities changed once she became a parent. She found that serving families through her private practice allowed her to feel fulfilled and have more freedom to spend time with her family.
