It is so incredibly difficult to believe that 18 years ago, I opened the door at 70 Victoria Street North with a staff of one, a really big dream and a whole lot of prayers!! 18 years later, here we are! A fabulous staff of 19, 2 locations and the creation of the most wonderful, long lasting relationships with so many clients, colleagues and friends! Gratitude is overflowing! I am so incredibly thankful for the love and support that so many of you have shown through this journey!
Throughout the years and right up until today, I am forever thankful for the amazing men and women who I have had the opportunity to work alongside! My heart is full for the forever love that past and current staff have for ABIM! I will never forget those who have worked endlessly to create a clinic that boasts a reputation for compassion, support, individualized treatment, and an environment where you leave feeling better than when you arrived…both physically and mentally! I wanted to provide “extras” and I am confident that we do…every single day!
I am so thankful for our colleagues who speak so highly of us and trust us with the care of their patients! They say that it takes a tribe and I believe this for so many reasons! Our village is better for the support of our tribe!
Most importantly, I am thankful for the many clients and friends who have made ABIM their “temporary” home at one time or another! There is no greater compliment than a referral or a return visit or a quick pop in to say hello even when they don’t need us! These things mean the world to us and reminds us that we are making a difference…and that was always the goal!!
Never ending hugs to Team V! There were times when Mom had to work and you simply understood! Even as little girls El and Karly, you quickly learned that sometimes Mom had to switch focus and you were always there to give so much love and understanding! And Johnny, you are the perfect wing mate in this crazy journey! Simply could not do this crazy life without the 3 of you!
So…here’s to another 18…or 20…or however long I make it! Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has and continues to support, trust and share the love of ABIM! Every single day, I am grateful for you!
