Why is Beth the the Right Coach for You?


Nobody can do it all. But what one can do is learn to focus on the tasks at hand.


Everyone has a story. It defines who they are and how they approach life’s twists and turns. Beth has learned over the years how to balance and overcome life’s adversities. As a mother and surgeon, Beth found herself
in a place where her husband was ill and hospitalized. These sort of things are never in one’s master plan. In fact it was through this adversity that Beth becasme overwhelmed and yes even suffered burnout.


Through her own recognition that she needed to shift her thinking, Beth started on her own path of embracing her passions. Life will always happen but it is how we decide to frame it that makes the difference. That is
the secret. She still loved her work and just needed to reframe how she approached the day to day tasks. You might not be able to have it all but through the coaching process you can make what you have a lot more
manageable by putting your focus on the tasks at hand.


Not everything in life is fun and sometimes you need to identify the things that make it less so. Beth realized she loves being a surgeon, but she had to learn to shift her outlook as a result of life’s unexpected curveballs.
Beth took the time to be coached and discover what is important to her. She realized she could focus on her career as a surgeon, her coaching practice and her family life.


That is what makes Beth a better coach and she has the certifications to help guide you and give you the tools to navigate Life and Work with the Precision of a Surgeon.

Mission and Vision


Coaching healthcare leaders to maintain presence

I work with healthcare leaders to overcome obstacles and find strategies to optimize their work life balance.  I believe that caring leaders who model health, commitment and growth will have the greatest impact on the wellbeing of others.  These leaders need to be present to their own needs as well as the needs of people around them.  To be present they need time and space to be aware of their thoughts and see the obstacles that are deterring them.  With my compassionate style of coaching for clarity, I create a reflective space for these leaders to define their own unique visions of health and success.  Together we find strategies to implement these visions so that they can be happier, more effective clinicians and leaders.

“Initially, I had little idea what to expect nor what I might gain from coaching. To be honest, I was a little skeptical. However, Beth and I worked our way through the process, it was apparent to me that the questions I had about my career, my path and myself became much more accessible  Therefore, it was easier to address them in a thoughtful and productive manner. I can’t express how helpful this process has been for me, both professionally and personally.” – KC 2019
