Sometimes a career switch can be inspired by a life-changing experience. After working in finance for almost 10 years, Teddy Levarda was looking to make a career change. Having to sit all day at work and the constant stress of his investment job had given him chronic hip and back pain.
In this episode of Career Switch Podcast, Teddy tells us how acupuncture changed his life and how it inspired him to become a licensed acupuncturist. He shares his initial doubts about giving up a six-figure salary when he went back to school for his Master's in 2016, and he opens up about the anxiety he felt while starting and building his practice, Morningside Acupuncture, in NYC. Today, Teddy specializes in treating pain and stress using acupuncture, dry needling, and Chinese medicine.
