On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Jenna Kantor, DPT guest hosts and interviews Carrie Callahan and Matthew Bremekamp on the non-profit Empower SCI: a residential rehabilitation program for individuals with spinal cord injuries. Carrie Callahan is a physical therapist and one of the founders of Empower SCI and Matthew Bremekamp was a participant in the program who has now become a mentor with Empower SCI.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Empower SCI’s mission to integrate patients back into their community

-The benefits of volunteering with a non-profit

-A multitude of ways to get involved and support Empower SCI

-Carrie and Matthew’s favorite memories while working with Empower SCI

-And so much more!

 

“A lot of the topics that are covered in inpatient rehab are vital to survival but not necessarily knowing how to enjoy life once again.”

 

“Those seeds were planted and the information that was given to him years ago as a participant has literally rolled into this full, meaningful, substantive existence for him that he could come back and share.”

 

“The power of the human spirit is the biggest thing that I’ve learned about during the time we’ve had Empower.”

 

“Look at life more of as a why not instead of a why.”

 

For more information on Carrie:

Carrie Callahan has practiced physical therapy for over 12 years, graduating from Ithaca College in 2003. She currently specializes in seating, positioning and wheeled mobility, earning her Assistive Technology Professional Certification in 2015, and now holds a position as Territory Sales Manager for Permobil, TiLite and ROHO products in the Boston area. She has a passion for teaching manual wheelchair skills, and has led Empower SCI in teaching these skills at Abilities Expos and through day courses for students, therapists and wheelchair-users in the Long Island and Boston communities. She also enjoys taking part in the adaptive sports community through Spaulding Adaptive Sports Centers, and in January of 2016, she was part of a team of one doctor and three clinicians who pioneered the monthly Adaptive Sports Medicine Clinic at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.

For more information on Empower SCI:

Empower SCI is a non-profit corporation established to enable individuals with spinal cord injuries to lead happier, more meaningful and more independent lives. Empower SCI seeks to fill the gap in the rehabilitation industry that has been created by a decrease in length of stays at rehabilitation hospitals and outpatient services during the recovery from a spinal cord injury.

Through community outreach and a two week residential rehabilitation program at Stony Brook University in Long Island, NY, Empower SCI will provide the knowledge, tools, strength, and support that individuals with spinal cord injuries need to thrive.

LIVE from the New York Student Special Interest Group Conference, I welcome Dr. Chanelle Yoder, DPT on this episode to chat about story telling. Chanelle is a Doctor of Physical Therapy, specializing in manual therapy and functional medicine, and an esteemed storyteller + author in progress. She is a cash-based concierge practice PT business owner, proudly servicing individuals in Southern Indiana.

In this episode, we discuss:

-How a clinician can build trust through vulnerability

-How to incorporate story telling into your practice

-When you should introduce industry knowledge into your patient’s care

-Chanelle’s self-care tips to ensure you show up at every patient visit

-And so much more!

 

“The more humanistic you can appear to someone else, the more humanistic you can make them feel about you.”

 

“When you’re really trying to transform someone’s life from a health perspective, it becomes very important to reach them at a very deep level that’s very impossible to find strictly from a clinical perspective.”

 

“It’s all about finding the feeling you have in common.”

 

“So many people just want to be heard and they want to know that you truly respect where they are coming from versus just pushing your agenda.

 

“We are not going to jive with everybody.”

 

For more information on Chanelle:

 

Dr. Yoder graduated from the University of Indianapolis with a Bachelors of Science in Human Biology and minor in Psychology in 2007. She applied to DPT school 15 times before temporarily accepting defeat, consequently accepting enrollment for PTA school at the University of Indianapolis, thus graduating with her Associate of Science in Physical Therapy Assistance in 2009.  Chanelle reapplied to DPT school yet again, only this time to the flex DPT program at the University of St.Augustine, FL. Dr. Yoder was finally offered admission, and successfully endured 4 years of bi-weekly cross-country commutes to earn her DPT in August 2014.

Dr. Yoder has utilized her extensive experience within each setting of physical therapy, including acute and post-operative orthopaedics, acute-TBI-CVA, sub-acute rehab, home health care, outpatient manual orthopaedics, acute cardiopulmonary care, and skilled nursing care, to fuel her approach to relationship-centered concierge-based integrative physical therapy.

The many ups and downs of her journey, in addition to the accompanying wisdom earned, have been remarkably documented through her personal storytelling within the online media marketplace, successfully fueling her organic business marketing, patient-centered outcomes, and adjacent career fulfillment. Her proven theory to success in the art of relationship building via organic storytelling is the primary inspiration to her digital course, The Enchantment Method©️, an academy transforming clinicians into story-rich, content dominating, relationship-obsessed masterminds.
