Q.3 What inspired you to (start a new business venture) or (to make significant changes in an existing business)? How did the idea for your business come about?
Ans. God led me to start Cedar Physical Therapy and Wellness in 2019. After a culmination of various experiences, I desired to work with clients individually and provide the highest, uninterrupted level of service that I could. Mobile PT was a good entry way into the entrepreneur life; it allows me to bring great care to the client’s desired treatment location. I am passionate about helping people recover from scar trauma acutely after a surgery or years. Treating a scar/scars can be the missing link to helping someone get out of pain or move better. I love working with each client and their body to figure out the puzzle about how their brain is choosing to move them.
