Starting at 8 am, Members can network over a morning beverage at a local establishment to be announced. There is also a structured occasion to speak for 30 seconds to the group about your business or organization and what you have to offer (a.k.a your elevator pitch). And, you'll have an opportunity to meet Megan VanEss, Physical Therapist.
In 1991, Athletico CEO and founder, Mark Kaufman, opened the first Athletico center in Chicago. As a licensed physical therapist and certified athletic trainer, Mark opened the first center with one employee and provided services to two affiliations—Francis W.
