-guilt or imposter syndrome after a negative patient outcome

-struggle with juggling the demands of work, parenting, and personal commitments

-disillusioned and overworked from constant staffing shortages and turnover

-frustration from working hard, giving all you can, exhausted at the end of the day, yet it doesn’t seem to be enough, thinking, “if I could just get caught up on____, then….”

You are not alone. You are not broken. I guarantee you that many professionals in medicine feel this way. I have. You are amazing and complete. I’d love to support you.

About Jenny


   I’m Jenny. I am a certified life coach, emergency medicine physician, mom, and wife. Working in the Emergency Room during the COVID pandemic, taking care of young kids at home, and juggling work and life commitments were taking a heavy toll. Experiencing burnout in 2020, I wanted to course correct so that I was no longer running on empty and better able to show up for my patients, loved ones, and myself. Through life coaching, I was able to make incredible strides in mindset that allowed me to pivot and go from survival mode to thriving. I was able to stop dreading and start enjoying work, while also be more present with family. I was able to set and accomplish health and financial goals and dared to imagine new goals that previously seemed impossible.
   My mission is to help other healthcare workers overcome burnout and find more fulfillment at both work and home. I am a certified coach from The Life Coach School. As your coach, I will help you gain awareness of your current thoughts, gain clarity on where you are in your life, and empower you with the tools to get you to where you want to go.
   When I’m not working, I’m learning how to play – through traveling the world, goofing off with the kids and husband, and trying new, crazy-exciting-bucket-list-before-I-die things.

What is coaching and how can it help you?

Coaching is about creating awareness and empowering you to maximize your potential. The essence of coaching is about gaining clarity on your goals in life and supporting you to make the mindset shifts needed to take action to achieve them. Coaching can help you identify what obstacles are keeping you stuck and then strategize to remove these roadblocks and get you on your way to where you want to go.


“Working with Jenny has revolutionized my life. She listens non-judgmentally and thoughtfully and asks incisive questions that helped me have multiple aha moments. She helped me realize that I have the power to actively and successfully troubleshoot problems in my life.

The sense that I am powerful and that I can make concrete changes to solve chronic, previously overwhelming problems in my life has greatly improved my sense of peace and contentment.  If you are thinking of working with Jenny, I would tell you not to hesitate.  She is down-to-earth, understanding, relatable, and brilliantly effective.”
