    It was in this transition she acutely felt the anxiety of not only being a newcomer but also often being the only woman in her team or at an industry networking event. This spurred her to create her own tech events for girls and to create a social enterprise to close the gender gap in a male-dominated industry.

    We talk about knowing when to pivot, making a side gig a full-time gig, going from an employee to a manager, and why it’s important to have more women and girls in tech.

Each episode is curated to provoke you to think more deeply about the things that matter in your career and life and to build your toolkit for how to thrive as a human in business today. We explore how we work from the inside out.

    In this episode of in the company, we talk with Dr. Fern White, dental surgeon, founder of an all-female dental practice Beacon Cove Dental, creator of the Practice Your Passion programme for female dentists, and a qualified yoga teacher.

    Fern came to Australia by boat as a Vietnamese refugee with her family when she was just two years old. Throughout her life her family strong work ethic pushed her and her siblings to succeed.

    In this episode, we talk about how Fern went from a panic attack in the first six months of running her business the way everyone told her she should, to tapping into her own beliefs and wisdom to create a highly successful practice combining her extensive dental training and personal development tools like mindfulness, breathing and reframing.

    The combination of modalities represents new ways of dental care for clients and practitioners alike and actually makes going to the dentist an almost pleasant experience.
