Whether it’s ditching your current job or revamping it, moving into leadership, or negotiating for what you really want in life and work: you’ve come to the right place.

What if, a year from now, things were exactly the same? How would that feel? Maybe now is time for change.

-Female Surgeon (name withheld by request)

As a board certified oculoplastic surgeon with over 25 years of clinical experience, I know what you’re going through. I know what it took to get there. And I’ve felt your frustration. And learned to change turmoil into triumph.

Several years ago, I went through life altering burnout. I had a meltdown. It wasn’t pretty. I knew I needed help. And I did that thing we were taught to do in med school: I looked for answers. And I turned my life around, 180 degrees, to a place where I enjoyed my work, my patients, and my life. How? I reached out to a coach.
Back then, it was rare for a physician to hire a coach. Even though in the business world, over 40% of executives are provided coaches, like we’re furnished stethoscopes. Through coaching, my life was so transformed. I decided to pay it forward.

I completed two years of coach training and became double certified as an executive life coach through Dr. Martha Beck (Oprah’s Life Coach!) and Dr. Lissa Rankin. Over the past 8 years, in addition to writing an international best seller on burnout, giving a TEDx talk to 5,000 people and keynotes around the world, I’ve have the honor and privilege of coaching hundreds of physicians, just like you.
If you’re one of my physician clients, you may be:
 - a few years out of training and looking for guidance;

 - or several years out and looking for a change.

You may be:
 - in a new leadership role and have a case of Imposter Syndrome;

 - or chairman or program director with a lot on your plate.

You may be:
 - getting ready for the Big Ask and need negotiating help;

 - or want to figure out where you want to go next.

You may be:
 - overwhelmed with your work, your family, your life;
 - or you may have a great new idea and need help executing it.
