First tell us about your business--how and why did you start it?
I started Rushmore Family Chiropractic in December of 2013 when I moved back to Rapid City. Starting my own business was one of the hardest things I have ever done. I was filled with fear- fear of the unknown really. My family is really who pushed me to do it on my own, instead of just going to work for someone else. Maybe they saw that I hate to be told what to do lol. Looking back it was one of the best decisions I ever made, hard, time consuming but amazing. One of the things that I think makes me love my practice so much is that it is me, my quirks, my heart and my soul have been poured into it. I take pride in what I have created and work hard to continue to have a business that has a positive impact on others lives.
What services do you provide?
Chiropractic and massage therapy
Who can benefit from your services?
Really anyone. You do not have to be in pain just to see a chiropractor. I have a lot of patients who come into my office for wellness, we help keep their body moving and functioning optimally. I have a very broad patient base, from week old babies to their great grandparents and everyone in between. I tailor my treatment to the individual and what their needs are, ie headaches, neck pain, back pain, numbness and pain down arms or legs, pregnancy, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, and chronic pain. For the babies that come in it is usually symptoms like torticollis, colic, GI issues, spitting up that bring them into the office.
What is a word of advice you can offer to other women in business?
Put on your big kid pants and keep your head up (and if you can't see a chiropractor, hehe). Surround yourself with people who actively want you to succeed and ditch the downers.
Why do you love The OWN?
I have been part of The OWN since it started but also since my practice was very little. It really helped me grow as a person and business owner. Sometimes I just needed to bounce an idea off another person that is in my shoes, or could see things from another perspective. OWNers are people who want to succeed and are willing to help you do the same.
