About me

I am a Professor of Family Medicine at Atrium Health in Charlotte, NC.  Previously Interim Chair and Vice Chair of the Department of Family Medicine, I continue on the faculty there as well as serve as the Medical Director of Physician Well-being for Medical Education for Atrium Health and Medical Director of Patient-Centered Programming at Atrium CMC-Mercy.

On a national and international level, I served on the Board of Directors for Planetree International, an organization committed to exceptional person-centered healthcare.

I am a graduate of the University of Kansas School of Medicine, did my residency in Family Medicine as well as served as Chief Resident at the University of Arizona and completed a Family Systems Medicine Fellowship at the University of Rochester.

In addition to my medical background, I have received training in and have been integrating family therapy, clinical hypnosis, mind/body medicine, mindfulness and leadership coaching into teaching, practice, and faculty development for over 25 years.  As a graduate of the HealthCare Coaching Institute, I have a focus on leadership, life, and professional well-being coaching.  I have taught regionally, nationally, and internationally on: physician burnout and well-being, mindfulness in medicine, developing a patient and family centered culture, family influences on health, physician-patient communication, and collaboration between mental heath and primary care.

I work with healthcare professionals who struggle with professional disillusionment, burnout, and an unbalanced life–all of which can happen at any stage of a medical career. Through our coaching sessions, healthcare professionals can achieve a more meaningful, purposeful, and flourishing life.
