Today, I’m genuinely excited to introduce to Aaron Wenburg and, no, it’s not a coincidence that we have the same last name. Aaron is, in fact, my awesome husband. He also happens to be a Physical Therapist, the Co-Owner of Sandhills Physical Therapy and Sports Rehab clinics, and a loving father.

In this episode, we talk about why Aaron became a Physical Therapist, how what he does is a good mix of business and caring for people, some of the struggles he experienced along the way, how he overcame those struggles, how he knows when it’s time to have a difficult conversation with his team, the precautions his clinics are taking as they keep their doors open during the current health crisis, and more!

Aaron’s story is one of resilience and an example of what it means to show grit and keep moving forward when things are difficult. I know I may be a little biased with this one, but I really think you’re going to find this an inspiring episode.
