A Certified Professional Physician Coach with an interest in physician and nurse wellness and fulfillment. My Coaching Philosophy is simple: I support my clients to make "inside-out" choices, guided by their core values.
Background and Experience:
A Nephrology specialist by training, I have a passion for maximizing the potential of my kidney failure patients so they can enjoy good quality of life, live independently, and feel full of hope.
A compassionate physician leader, I believe that that each member of my team is resourceful, knowledgeable, capable, and creative.
My interest in coaching began during my six years serving as Medical Director in a Dialysis Center, managing 192 patients and 60 employees for DIAVERUM renal services. Leadership training was part of the company’s staff development program and that is where I had my first exposure to coaching as an integral part of leadership.
It was clear to me that I could apply my coaching skills with both my patients and team members to improve outcomes. My foundational coach training and certification was through InviteChange, one of the most well-respected coach training organizations in the USA. In June 2020 I earned the prestigious recognition of Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coach Federation.
After I earned my first coaching credential, I had a vision about serving physicians, nurses and the healthcare team, but was unsure how I could do that and also continue my work as clinician and leader.
Through my specialized training with the Physician Coaching Institute (PCI), I learned to craft coaching programs for clinicians that were customized for my organization, my region, and the clinicians I want to support. In April 2021 I earned PCI’s prestigious recognition of Master Certified Physician Development Coach.
I feel gratified I can serve my community in multiple ways: as Consultant Nephrology, as leader, and as Master Certified Physician Development Coach.
