I am an Otolaryngologist/Head and neck surgeon who suffered from burnout. I use my experience as a professional speaker and life coach to empower female physicians to reclaim their career satisfaction and life balance.
When I was doing my residency, I quickly had to realize that women and men faced different challenges. My children, who are adults now, were both born during residency. After residency, I started my own private practice, but life came tumbling down when I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. This was a wakeup call that made me question what I thought before was the true meaning of life. The level of stress in my life that I felt after my kids were born and before my diagnosis, and while starting up my private practice, was indescribable, and made me challenge the definition of success.
I am in constant pursuit of self-awareness, career satisfaction and life balance. We thrive in our careers and our personal life when we focus on what brings us satisfaction and joy.
