Work demands are on the rise across a variety of fields, and this inevitably creates serious challenges for those of us who want to maintain balance - taking care of our personal wellbeing, while thriving in our professional lives. Nowhere is this felt more acutely than in the healthcare professions. Coordinated assessment and implementation of evidence-based interventions improve outcomes for individuals, patients, teams, and organizations.
I have worked as a content expert and trainer in strategies for resilience at Hennepin County Medical Center. I draw from Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (Jon Kabat-Zinn), and Partners in Resilience (Henry Emmons) models, as well as other effective approaches to address work stress and burnout. I provide trainings and talks on mindfulness and resilience both locally and nationally. I’m available to work with individuals, groups, and organizations.
