From Starting to Successful: Meet Start Alums Rachel, Vanessa, Luisa and Megan

From Starting to Successful: Meet Start Alums Rachel, Vanessa, Luisa and Megan

Do you ever wish that you could hear directly from the people who have gone from regular SLPs or OTS to successful private practitioners after going through the Start Your Private Practice program? 

Well, today’s episode of Private Practice Success Stories is going to introduce you to four amazing Start Your Private Practice alums. We’ve got three SLPs on the panel: Vanessa Alcala, Luisa Rinaudo, and Rachael Harrelson. We also have one OT: Megan Bartley. 

All four of these Start Your Private Practice students came from different backgrounds. Some of these clinicians are in major cities and others are in small towns. Some work exclusively with adults, others exclusively with children, and others with all ages. Three started their private practices early in their careers and one started after a career change. 

These clinicians all had the same fears, doubts, and hesitations about private practice as you do, but they decided to go for it and join the Start Your Private Practice program to create a new future for themselves, their families, and their clients. I am so excited to share their stories with you! 


In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:


  • The settings that these alums worked in and why they decided they wanted to venture into private practice 
  • The outside-of-the-box services you can offer in private practice that you can’t offer in traditional settings
  • The various routes they are using to land clients in their private practices
  • The different payment methods you can take in your private practice
  • The many incredible benefits of starting a private practice
  • What these alums have to say to anyone considering starting their private practice


I hope you enjoyed hearing from these four amazing Start Your Private Practice students and they inspired you to take action and take your future into your own hands. 

Making the decision to start a private practice is a big decision, but it could also be your best decision. I can’t wait to help you start your private practice!
