Greetings Friends, Colleagues, and Fellow Professionals,
Any time that I sit down to write, I am overcome with sincere gratitude for the opportunities that Hired Power has allowed myself and my team. So first and foremost, thank you for trusting us as professionals and collaborators in transition treatment planning for those you serve.
With the summer winding down, that also means that conference season is gearing up. August can be a great time for reflection, to keep things "right sized" and to put a plan in place for self-care.

Simply, whatever we do, we strive to do "it" BEST...
