We had the good fortune of connecting with Kylie Sleeth & Jenny Junker and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kylie & Jenny, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
Thrive! Therapy is a mobile outpatient therapy provider including occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech language pathology. We primarily work with older adults in the Denver metro area. We meet individuals in their own homes or in the community and address needs including safety, home modifications, community living skills, fall prevention, and more to help them continue to live and age in place. Mobile outpatient therapy is filling the gap to help individuals age in place and stay in their homes longer. Many individuals, especially older adults, typically do not use their outpatient benefits due to transportation, scheduling, or cognitive deficits. Therefore, we are able to bring outpatient services to them in a convenient and needed environment.
What should our readers know about your business?
Thrive! Therapy was founded on the idea that all individuals should have access to quality therapy services, whether or not they are able to make it to an outpatient clinic. We advocate for adults to get the resources and services they need beyond typical outpatient therapy. Starting a therapy business as a therapist is not an easy task. There aren’t too many therapists who decide to jump into entrepreneurship. We have taken the challenge head on and have sought out advice, assistance, and support from amazing individuals in both the therapy world and business world. We have been immersed in a supportive community of other therapy entrepreneurs and have been able to work through challenges and problem solve with assist from others who have been in a similar place or faced a similar issue. We have also been able to juggle our work-life balance while running a business and still working as therapists, but we wouldn’t be able to do it without the support from our family and friends.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We are outdoor people and love nature! Our day would start with a morning hike at Red Rocks or the Bluffs in Lone Tree. We would follow up with drinks at Avanti in Denver or relaxing at a brewery. If we were going out on a day trip, we would be sure to include the views in Dillon, Breckenridge, or Buena Vista for exploring, amazing food, and drinks!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Our team of occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech language pathologists along with our admin partners deserve a shoutout. Our team is creative, flexible, and experts in their field. We are so grateful to be able to rely on our team members to provide extraordinary care to our patients in the community.
