I’m a board-certified pediatrician, fellowship trained in academic general pediatrics. I transitioned from academic medicine to health plan leadership in 2013 and am currently the Associate Chief Medical Officer for a health plan based out of my home state of Illinois. I have advanced certifications in physician coaching, leadership coaching, and deep dive coaching.
Neurodivergence runs deep in my family. Physicians are often diagnosed (formally or through self discovery/diagnosis) well into adulthood. While the diagnosis may come with some understanding and validation many still have questions. Unsure where to go with their newfound knowledge that’s where I come in. I help neurodiverse docs discover their “what now”. We address the guilt, shame, and limiting beliefs that come with a diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, learning disorder, autism spectrum disorder or any other disability. Our brains are amazing and I help docs embrace the different yet glorious ways their brains work. I work with you to harness your gifts, not squelch them.
