Meet Kristina Madden, CEO/Owner/Founder of Madden Therapy Solutions & Madden Healthcare Solutions

In this episode of “And in Heels,” we had the pleasure of speaking with Kristina Madden, a speech language pathologist and entrepreneur, who shares her journey of starting her own pediatric therapy practice. She discussed the power of believing in oneself and the importance of having a supportive team.

When listening to Kristina’s story, she offers advice on: 

  • Hiring the right people for the growth and success of a business.
  • Prioritizing tasks and focusing on the most important ones for better productivity and success.
  • Learning how to read people and adapt to their needs if you want to be successful as an entrepreneur in the healthcare field.


Kristina’s journey from an eleven-year career in a demanding hospital system to successful entrepreneurship teaches us the power of resilience and determination. After experiencing burnout in the hospital system, she pursued her passion for personalized healthcare, working tirelessly beyond her regular job to build her own company. By seizing opportunities, networking, and embracing change, she transformed her vision into a thriving reality, reminding us all that with unwavering commitment, we can turn our dreams into inspiring success stories.

Kristina’s journey was no walk in the park. From her early battles with bullying and the dark thoughts that once consumed her as a child, to the shock of experiencing a stroke just one month into her entrepreneurial venture, she faced hurdles that could have broken anyone’s spirit. Yet, remarkably, these challenges only fueled her determination. They transformed her into a warrior, resilient and unyielding, ready to take on anything that came her way. With each trial, she emerged stronger, wiser, and more committed to her path.

Kristina Madden’s story serves as a reminder that with passion, perseverance, and the support of a strong team, women entrepreneurs can overcome any challenge and achieve their dreams. By prioritizing people, investing in education, and staying organized, we can create businesses that make a positive impact on the world.
