Kate Markland - Living and Leading During Uncertainty
Kate Markland - The Markland Clinic, Founder, The Markland Method, Cotswold Leisure Centre, Cirencester, UKI have been a successful hands-on Physiotherapist for many years and have always believed Contemporary Healthcare should be delivered in an inspiring, energetic, caring and professional way, for both the clients and the team alike. During a period of personal reflection and change, I realized I was a liability to my own business and that the safest option was to trust and support my team with a system they could understand and connect with. My goal was to enable my team to confidently run AND grow the business profitably without me physically being present all the time. After much research, I was unable to find a course or program that was suited to what I needed because much of what already existed simply lacked the basic fundamentals of assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and outcome.Disappointed in what I found, I decided to create a system teaching clinicians the anatomy and physiology of business so they can apply their clinical reasoning skills to their business and create healthy sustainable profitable clinics. There is relative decrease in social funding for non-emergency healthcare and increase in privatization of healthcare delivery. Small clinic businesses lack business education in language they can relate too.I named the program The Markland Method – a biological model for running a profitable business in a language that healthcare businesses already understand.The Markland Method value proposition is teaching clinicians the fundamentals of how to run a business and how to apply their knowledge of structure and function, and the principles of business assessment, diagnosis, treatment, outcome.”You can learn more about The Markland Method by clicking here: https://marklandmethod.com

Natalia Valentina Hernandez - Viña del Mar, Chile
Natalia is a teacher of 20 male students at a private British school. She continues working during the pandemic through Zoom. In her honesty she finds teaching from home highly demanding with gathering material, checking learning guides, and doing classes. It has extended her work hours from ending at 4:30 pm to now as late as 10:00PM. Natalia enjoys reading and cooking as coping mechanisms during quarantine. She also loves music and connects with her father, singing while he plays guitar through Zoom. This helps her keep a human connection with the ones she loves. What gives her hope during the virus is that people will stay at home as much as possible. Natalia especially enjoys cooking nutritious foods and proudly shares them on her Instagram account: @lapocimadelanatita. The economy of Chile is suffering dramatically from the COVID-19 situation, especially as the country is a popular tourist area. There is no tourism right now in Chile, the restaurants and beaches are closed. Natalia states some tourists still try to come despite warnings, to the frustration of residents. Social outbursts are happening in Chile due to high prices of products such as facial masks and basic foods. There have already been social outbursts in Chile before the pandemic. People want to take to the streets and protest paying for education, inequality, public healthcare, and the treatment of elderly health, her country has been fighting for these issues since last October. She believes the government is not handling the crisis well and confusing people with what to do during quarantine. In Santiago, people must print passes to leave their homes, however due to poor Internet, people leave their homes without one. Her country is expecting to have to be quarantined until the end of May. Chile has about 5,000 people with the Corona virus, with about 300 more cases daily.

Julia Simone - Cosmetologist on a mission to help people feel beautiful inside and out.
My name is Julia. I am 22 years old I have suffered with a learning disability that makes it hard for me to understand things and communicate with other people. This challenge has given me severe anxiety and depression for the greater portion of my life. I was bullied a lot through school. Kids knocked me down and would tell me I was fat, ugly, retarded, never going anywhere with my life, and so much more.More than once, I wanted to end my life.I was homeschooled for most of high school and I spent most of my time with my Grandmother. Those who know me know my Grandmother was my whole life. She passed away my senior year and it took a tremendous toll on me. Somehow, some way, I found the strength and decided to go back to school. I got into college and my first semester was great! The second semester rolled around and three more family members had passed away. My depression began to get worse again and I decided to take some time off of school to figure out what I wanted to do. I am so happy I did.Today I am a cosmetologist with a great job supported by my amazing coworkers. I have a beautiful group of friends who all go above and beyond to make each other laugh and feel good about themselves. I have my mom and my sister who have never left my side. They are always my biggest fans and always help pick me up when I’m down. I am sharing my story because I’ve been seeing many beautiful souls take their lives because of people who are mean – even brutal. These bullies do not (or will not) open their minds and realize that words hurt! My mission in life is to help people feel beautiful inside and out. I want to help anyone who is having a hard time understand that one-day it WILL BE okay and you will find your way! You will love life and you will understand why you are important to the world. Everyone is important! You are Worth it! You are Strong. You are Powerful.

Lindsey Sutton - Director of Education for The Lands at Hillside Farms
My name is Lindsey Sutton. I’m also known as “Mama”, “Mommy”, “Ma! The Meatloaf” (thank my husband for that), and Miss Lindsey. I’m the adoptive mother of two strong willed, amazing children and the Director of Education for The Lands at Hillside Farms. My hobbies include tripping over toys, drinking coffee like it is my sole life force, and guessing what the stains on my clothing are from. As the Director of Education at The Lands at Hillside Farms, I have the pleasure of using fun phrases like, “Just put that box of skulls in the trunk so you can sit in the car” and “Hold on a second, the goat has her head stuck again”. Most of my coworkers have feathers, fur, or four legs. Teaching vulnerable youth actually helped me begin diving into the world of foster care after seeing the need in our community. My family was built through foster care and we have been unbelievably fortunate throughout our process. My husband and I began the process in January of 2017, and received the call for our son two days after being approved. The next day, he was in our arms. We brought our daughter home from the NICU five months later. Raising two infants/toddlers 16 months apart in age has been quite the experience. (Hence the coffee.) Navigating the world of foster care and adoption has been an eye opening experience for me. I learned things about myself I didn’t know were possible. Not only did we become a family through our experience, but we’ve added so many “extended family members” to our tribe. Although it was a bumpy ride, our kids made every moment worthwhile.
