Jessi Andricks knows that being an SLP isn’t always easy. After 4 years, she was overwhelmed, stressed and heading straight to burn out. There was no balance in her life and everyday was overwhelming, exhausting and challenging. There seemed to be no joy in the work she was doing and it trickled into every other aspect of her life. Finally, she threw in the towel, called it quits and followed her passion of nutrition, yoga and wellness coaching. After a few years, and a new perspective, she was ready to work as an SLP again, this time with the tools she needed to prevent any burn out and manage stress. She now works in the field, as well as coaches others on how to find more balance in their lives as a kick-butt, hard working SLP.
