Wondering if you should start a private practice so that you can have more flexibility for your family? You’re going to love this episode of Private Practice Success Stories!
I sat down with Krista Jones to discuss how she did just that. She started her private practice after realizing that the long hours and low pay for her job weren’t enough for her family.
I’ve gotten to know Krista during her time in the Grow Your Private Practice Program and it has been amazing to watch her take off and truly build a practice that she loves while having the income and time flexibility that her family needs.
In this episode she talks about where she gets most of her referrals- hint: it’s a great strategy for pediatric clinicians! She also discusses what she’s doing with her clinic space and her plans to hire additional staff so that her clinic can run without her so that she can focus on other aspects of her business and still be there for her family.
Krista was born and raised in Southern California and moved to Georgia in August 2022. She started her SLP journey as a CF in an outpatient clinic treating individuals across the lifespan, however, the majority of her caseload was “late talkers” ages 0-3.
After 2 years at the clinic, she transitioned to an elementary school in order to spend more time with her children. Krista always knew she wanted to eventually open her own speech clinic, and when she and her family moved to GA, the opportunity presented itself!
She started offering free speech and language screenings to preschools and just recently opened her brick-and-mortar! She is looking forward to hiring soon and growing her practice.
In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:
- Krista’s experience as an SLP and why she decided private practice was right for her
- How Krista began to grow her caseload for her private practice
- Where she gets most of her referrals
- The clinic Krista opened in order to help even more patients
- How Krista decided how much clinic space she needed for her future vision
- The flexibility you get with your private practice to be with your family
- The tragic circumstances that lit a fire under Krista to make her private practice dream a reality
- Krista’s plans for the future of her private practice
I hope you loved this episode with Krista! She is a perfect example of someone who knew that she was stuck in a job that wasn’t supporting her and that in order for things to change, she needed to make a change. And just like Krista, you can do this too.
