About the Podcast
The Level Up Podcast is based around bringing our core values to life:
Passion, Forward Thinking, Service Mindset, Growth Mindset, Humility, and Abundance Mindset.
It is our goal to interview guests from Physical Therapy and beyond to demonstrate how universal these values are in driving greatness and success, regardless of profession.
In addition to this, we will be bringing in interviews from patients who can offer valuable insight into the pro’s and con’s of their medical experience, and insight into why we so desperately need change.
