Meet Our Founder
Hello my name is Heather Hanlan, I am from the beautiful island of Nassau Bahamas. After over two decades of practicing physical therapy and having been on the opposite end receiving physical therapy, I found patients have more than physical impairments that affect their overall function and participation within society. Their environment and mindset played a big role in how they viewed and participated in their recovery process. So my approach to physical therapy management with clients is always from a wholistic viewpoint.
Though physical therapy is my first love, for the past few years my heart has been drawn to expanding to help other professional women, who are feeling unfulfilled in their lives, like I was.
At the top of my career field, I’ve had the opportunity to travel to many countries, and would say relatively had a quiet life. However, with all that and more, for years I felt stuck in my life, lonely and lost. I possessed a negative self-image and self-doubt continuously beat at my door. I wasn’t happy! But one day I just got tired of feeling tired; tired of drifting through the days with no clear idea of what was next in my life. So I made a choice to reclaim my life, reshaping my mind body and spirit. Throughout the years in my professional and social interactions I was surprised there were so many women, who feel as I do! Because, I know what it feels like to feel stuck and unhappy, I am passionate about helping other professional women gain clarity in their life by tapping into their inner core, taming their inner critic and help guide them on the path to rediscover their HPH (happiness, prosperity and good health) Factor!
