Building a Private Practice for Flexibility (Including Time for Tennis) with Tracy Droege OTR, MS

Building a Private Practice for Flexibility (Including Time for Tennis) with Tracy Droege OTR, MS

Are you dreaming of more flexibility so that you have time for the things that you love? 

Starting a private practice is the perfect way to live life on your own terms. You set your hours and you decide what’s important to you. Since it’s your private practice, you get to run it how you see fit. 

In this episode of Private Practice Success Stories, I sat down with Tracy Droege to talk about how she grew her private practice with flexibility in mind so that she could still make time for her other passion- tennis. Tracy shares her goals for hiring, marketing tips, and how she plans to integrate systems as she grows. 

Tracy Droge is an occupational therapist and certified ADHD provider in Temple, Texas. She started her OT private practice, The Rise Center, in order to have more flexibility as she cared for a sick family member. Although it was born out of a sad situation, she has been able to turn it into a happy one by caring for children and families who benefit from her services.


In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:


  • How Tracy has created her practice around her life
  • Tips for prioritizing things that are important
  • When Tracy decided to start growing her private practice
  • The hiring process
  • The systems that have helped Tracy grow her business
  • How Tracy stepped into the CEO role
  • Time management tips for private practice owners


I hope you found this episode inspiring. I love how Tracy created a private practice with flexibility in mind. Between caring for family members and her tennis career, having flexible hours has allowed her to have significantly more control over her time than she would if she was working in a regular setting.
