It has been an exciting couple of years and I am about to start a new chapter in my life and career, so am starting my blog back up with the goal that my interns will contribute starting in the fall as well. With that said I am founding a limited liability corporation in Brooklyn, NY!!! A very exciting and scary step in a good direction.
I left my hospice job in May and took a couple weeks to travel to Scotland with my friend Olivia. We hiked along some of The West Highland Way and camped. It was an amazing experience and really helped me transition onto my new path.
So, here is what has been going on:
2014 was mostly about adjusting to living in Brooklyn. (I love it!)
Still teaching at School of Visual Arts in Manhattan (Love this too!)
Traveled in Argentina in January 2015 (So much fun!)
Decided to leave my hospice job (scary, but exciting)
Began researching and planning how to start a PLLC.
Traveled to Scotland for a backpacking trip (Amazing!)
Here is what is on the horizon:
Writing my 2nd book, this time focused on Alzheimer's disease.
Attend and present at 2015 AATA conference.
Find an office by September for Creatively Healing, PLLC.
Found Creatively Healing, PLLC.
Interns start in the fall!
Develop workshops for CATs.
Start groups and sessions for clients.
Go after funding possibilities.
Teach a class of Chilean students in Aug.
Pursue NBCC CE provider status.
Get license in NJ when it is available.
Hire part time employees or independent contractors (already have people interested!)
Expand and reach more amazing people!
I would love to hear your thoughts and questions, so feel free to reach out any time!
Emery is excited that Water & Stone is becoming a reality and hopes this blog will inspire others and be a place to share challenges, success, and exciting moments.
