At the end of 2015 I did a cannonball off the high dive. I quit my 20-year career in business and drove home jobless with no plan.

I took the next 6-7 months to dive deeper and "soul search"; that journey you hear so many people talk about when they've hit a serious road block in life. At the end of that time I didn't have any new realizations. Rather, I decided to face the biggest fear that continued to hold me back in life. The fear that kept me from becoming an entrepreneur and putting my own ideas out into the world. The fear that kept me hidden in the dark for so many years... the fear of embarrassment. 

I found an ICF MCC Executive Coach and got to work on reframing my self limiting beliefs over the next two years. That experience changed my life and my purpose. I decided to go through the proper certification channels and become an executive coach myself and help others rewire their thought patterns in order to influence well-being. I now work with orthopedic surgeons who suffer from imposter syndrome and physician burnout. And it feels amazing to be part of something bigger than myself.

Here is a snippet of the flagship program I offer...

SURGEON BURNOUT MASTERCLASS: A 3-month masterclass designed for surgeons with limited spare time, who want to learn evidence-based strategies to cope with stress, reduce burnout, and become more engaged with their work/life.

SURGEON BURNOUT MASTERCLASS MISSION... turn your limited spare time outside the clinic or hospital into a strategic roadmap that helps reduce the three major symptoms of burnout by improving your ability to set boundaries without feeling guilty, creating clear intentions to remain optimistic as the day unfolds, and learn how to rewire thought patterns in order to influence wellbeing, so you can BUILD A BETTER DAY OFF.

SIDENOTE: For over 20 years, I've worked on the business side of both retail and healthcare. I earned my MBA from The University of Central Florida and graduate certifications in competitive and connected strategy from The University of Pennsylvania/Wharton School of Business. I also help organizations develop and facilitate their strategic plans.
