I first met today's guest through our kids who attended the same school. Then, in typical small-town Riverside fashion, we proceeded to seemingly run into each all over town. And once we got to talking and I learned more about her business, I knew her story would be a great one to share.
Suzanne Muirheid is a co-founder of Mindful Wellness Therapy. Located right next door to Riverside in the Berwyn Depot District, Mindful Wellness was founded in 2016 with the vision of becoming a community resource to help people feel better and lead more fulfilling lives.
In our conversation, we discuss how Suzanne and her family choose Riverside based on it's community feel and her small-town roots, how an interest in social work lead her to counseling, and how her combined desire to give back to her community & being from a family of entrepreneurs ultimately lead to the formation of Mindful Wellness.
I hope you enjoy my conversation with our neighbor Suzanne Muirheid.
When I started the Riverside Newcomers Facebook group, it wasn't intentionally done to discover folks to feature on this podcast but I quickly realized it would help me do just that. It's been a pleasure to spread the word about new folks who are doing great things here in Riverside and today's guest is no exception.
Apryl Chapman-Konar and her family are recent arrivals here to Riverside. Apryl is the owner of Raising Blossoms Photography, where she specializes in natural, lifestyle photography.
In our conversation, we discuss how a job change brought Apryl and her family from California to Riverside, how the Riverside Area Mom's Facebook group helped her realize Riverside was the right spot for her family, and what it's like growing her business one connection at a time in a new community.
I hope you enjoy my conversation with our new neighbor Apryl Chapman-Konar.
