    • Health & Fitness

Have you ever experienced burnout just from advocating for your patients? Doesn’t it feel like you’re screaming into a black hole in healthcare sometimes because organizations put profits over patients? Dr. Veronica Velasquez, PT, DPT is an acute care physical therapist, working in a small community hospital in South Los Angeles/Compton, CA. She is fortunate to be able to work, since she is also an undocumented immigrant. Veronica shares her undocumented journey and the misconceptions around being undocumented. If you’re also undocumented and feel alone on your journey, Veronica offers helpful advice that guided her to get her to where she is today. She also talks about the duality of burnout and having joy in your job, the practical advice that has helped her mitigate burnout now, and aspects of wellness that currently light her up (hello, financial wellness!)
