In today's episode, we welcome Dr. Lana Joseph-Ford to the show. As a young girl, Dr. Lana Joseph-Ford suffered from hearing difficulties and a speech impediment, and she was bullied as a product of it. She used her childhood experience to develop a great sense of resilience, developing early-intervention strategies for individuals with communication disorders.

This experience is also what inspired her to become an audiologist and open her own practice, High Level Speech and Hearing Center in New Orleans. Dr. Ford is also the founder and CEO of Joseph-Ford Enterprises, and is an advocate for musicians’ health around New Orleans, with notable clients like artists Drake and the musical group Tank and the Bangas.

In our Episode with Dr. Ford, we discuss:

  • Dr. Ford’s background and inspiration for founding her practice
  • How to balance being a healthcare practitioner with being an entrepreneur
  • Common challenges and misconceptions in the early stages of starting a healthcare practice
  • What it took to teach Lana that developing core values as a company is crucial
  • The shift to a virtual office in the era of COVID, looking ahead to the future
