I am an Osteopathic Family Medicine Physician. I interviewed for medical school when I was 17 years old and with an early career start, I had to overcome multiple, mostly mindset barriers throughout my medical education. I had the opportunity to experience life in Academic medicine for several years, during which my greatest joy was teaching medical students to believe in their clinical skills, contemplate their specialty choices and the population they want to serve, and accept the uncertainty of the healthcare profession. I was previously a Physician Leader (Clinic Medical Director, Department Wellness Director, and Department COVID-19 Lead Physician). I experienced burnout twice. During this time, I decided to invest in myself and collaborate with a Physician Coach, and it changed my life. I was able to develop the courage to acknowledge my burnout and openly discuss this with my supervisors. I advocated for myself to have a part time schedule. I chose myself and walked away from a job that no longer aligned with my values. I found a way to practice medicine more sustainably. I openly shared my experiences which had the ripple effect of allowing other burgeoning leaders to ask for more, ask for what they deserve.
My breadth of experiences allows me to confidently coach any medical professional, and my focus is the two ends of a continuum: those at the beginning of their journey (medical students) and those entrenched in Physicianhood (Attending Physicians).
I collaborate with my clients to bring clarity: whether that be preventing burnout, traversing burnout, exploring how you can make your current environment work in your favor, or navigating any kind of transition (deciding whether to leave medicine, starting a new leadership role, or as a medical student, going from didactic to clinical years, choosing a specialty, applying to and interviewing for residencies, for example).
You have the answers. Allow me to help you change the trajectory of your life by unlocking that wisdom within yourself.
