Maida Learning is here for allied health professionals at every point in their practice. If you want to start, grow or slow down, we are here to help you out. We live by our mantra that we are your practice friends, from start to end. We talk to many allied health professionals and we know what it is like to run a private practice.
The core values of Maida Learning are simple. We want to provide support and education that is practical, relevant and affordable so your can easily increase your knowledge and skills in the business side of your allied health practice.
"I started off in private practice in 2006 and had no idea what I was doing! Over time I have studied business, tried new things, built a team around me, and designed the ideal practice that I love. I wanted to create a place where I could share my ideas and help others in their private practice journey. This is why I began Maida Learning. I want you to be able to achieve success without having to start out where I did. If I can prevent you from feeling lost and overwhelmed in private practice, I will be a very happy person. Being in private practice is rewarding, and has given me immense joy. I want you to feel that too."
