TAKING CONTROL OF HER LIFE & CIRCUMSTANCES: TIA’S STORY

Tia Javier is a private practitioner and one of only 91 Spanish speaking speech-language pathologists in the state of Virginia. She is actually someone who I first came across when she joined the Start Your Private Practice program. Tia saw a huge need in the market for a bilingual private practice. In this episode, she shares how her student loans motivated her to make this decision, what a typical day in her practice looks like and her plans for the future. I really like Tia’s attitude and how she doesn’t look at obstacles as a set-back but instead figures out a way to overcome them.

Claudia Hamilton Davisson is a private practitioner based out of Michigan and a mentor for my Start Your Private Practice program. Claudia has been a SLP for over three decades and has worked in so many different areas of the business.

In this episode, Claudia shares how she started her business as a private practitioner on the side of her job. She talks about the reasons she was drawn to private practice and the areas where she sees other private practitioners get stuck in their business.

​We also talk about where she sees most of her referrals come from and her advice for someone who is unsure if opening their own private practice is the right move for them.

It is SO MUCH FUN to hear how private practice has changed each of these SLPs lives for the better.
Whether it’s wanting to work with ideal clients (like Katie and Tiffany), spending more time with family (like Emily) or using private practice to diversify income (like Bobbi and Tami), I hope you enjoy hearing about their journeys to private practice and how they got the information, support and guidance they needed by following The Start Your Private Practice System.
