Chelsea started out working in managed care and, while she initially thought that’s what she wanted to do, it quickly became clear to her that the pay could not justify the number of hours she’d have to spend on the job. It didn’t afford her the freedom or flexibility that she wanted.
So, Chelsea started her own private practice! But, it sputtered along. While she hoped it would provide her the financial security to pay off student loan debt, go on vacations, and save for retirement, instead she found herself sliding her scale, working too many hours and, once again, not making enough to live out the dream she’d hoped when she entered private practice.
