She has lots of ways to de-stress.

Nytarsha Thomas, OD Visionelle Eyecare, Zionsville, IN

Dr. Nytarsha Thomas loves being a practice owner. “I get to be creative and execute my own ideas,” she says. “I get to lead and motivate the members of my team, and — theoretically — make my own hours and report only to myself.” All great things … but ownership has its downfalls too. “When we are short-staffed, I fill in everywhere. I am also the last one to get paid so if we have a bad month my take home is zero, and all unreasonable patients are sent my way. Though rare, I have lost sleep over angry patients that I couldn’t do anything to appease.” Luckily, she has lots of ways she likes to de-stress, often with husband Tobe, baby Carter and pup Capri, and sometimes all by herself. “After a long day, I pour myself a large glass of cran-mango juice and watch the cheesiest Christmas theme romantic comedy on Netflix after Carter has gone to bed.”
