Officially, Mental Fitness as a business started October 9th, 2017.
I worked as a solopreneur for about three months until January of 2018. It was then that I was able to hire my good friend and fellow therapist, Howard Irwin, LCSW to join the team.
From there, we brought on our third team member, Jessica Calhoon, LCSW, and fourth team member, our office manager, Anna Pease, in August of 2019. It was also at this time that we were able to move locations to a larger office space in Cranberry where we still operate today.
Not long after we upgraded the office, an intern from Slippery Rock University named Tyler Spence approached me about a position with the company. She impressed me so much throughout her time with us that I’ve now hired her as our business developer.
More recently, we’ve brought on two additional coaches: Spencer Murray, who does Student-Athlete Mental Fitness Coaching, and Daniel Ruffolo, who does guided imagery services.
This brings our total team count to seven and counting. It’s a great start and I couldn’t be more thankful to have the team that we do!
