Dr Wendy Schofer embodies how contradictions make us who we uniquely are. A pediatrician, a lifestyle physician, and a certified professional life & health coach, Dr Schofer’s career has ranged from military medicine to locums; children’s hospital to community nonprofit, and now entrepreneurship.
Dr Schofer began her speaking career while in uniform, leading her unit’s educational sessions. Since retiring from the Navy, she speaks on topics near-and-dear to her heart in intimate groups and facilitating discussion. Dr Schofer is a convener of conversations, which is distinctly different than your typical lecturer. She prompts participants to reflect and consider different perspectives, challenging their assumptions and institutional status quo. Instead of traditional objectives for others to take away, Dr Schofer invites participants to share their takeaways, knowing that true adult learning is in the hands of the recipient.
Contact Dr Schofer to discuss speaking engagements ranging from helping parents lead their family to healthy habits and healthy childhood weight, to “The Power of Play to Combat Burnout,” “Optimizing Your Strengths and Understanding Your Values: An Essential Exercise for Workplace Well-Being after Burnout,” and “The Stress Cycle: Where Burnout, Mental Health and Weight Converge.”
She has taken her passion for creating health and play in our daily lives throughout her journey. She embodies lifestyle medicine, even before it was a specialty.
