    171: [INVOLVEMENT] 7 Benefits of AAPA Membership

    If you’re going to make a decision about something, that decision should be well informed. Just like reviewing an informed consent with a patient where we cover the risks, benefits and alternatives, you should understand what you’re missing out on if you aren’t a member of the AAPA.

    These are the top 7 benefits to being a member of the AAPA and why getting plugged into the network and advocacy efforts of the American Academy of Physician Associates should matter to you.

    170: [UNICORN] What’s it Like Being a Radiation Oncology PA? Joann Timberlake Tells All

    170: [UNICORN] What’s it Like Being a Radiation Oncology PA? Joann Timberlake Tells All

    There are less than 200 PAs working in the US in Radiation Oncology and Joann Timberlake is one of those. Starting a job in a new specialty, especially one so sparsely populated with PAs, is intimidating. Luckily Joann was willing to share with us how she broke into this role, transitioned out of the ER and into Rad Onc and what that process was like for her.

    I wanted to invite her on the podcast to share more about what her life is like now vs. when she was working shift work in the Emergency Department. There were growing pains with having to prove her abilities, that she is a trustworthy partner in the care of these cancer patients and the incredible value she can add to her Radiation Oncology physician partners. Joann aims to treat the entire patient; mind, body, spirit and soul in her practice and you aren’t going to want to miss her sharing her servant spirit and heart for patients and their excellent care.

    BONUS [BTS] My Very Public Mistake & How it Humbled Me

    BONUS [BTS] My Very Public Mistake & How it Humbled Me

    My VA slack messaged me “I don’t want to freak you out…but….Is it just me or is there no sound on today’s podcast episode? I tried listening on Apple Podcasts & also on YouTube but I don’t hear anything.”

    I published a SILENT Podcast episode last week & the experience was all together incredibly humbling. 

    Do you know what making a mistake in publishing my own podcast makes me?

    It’s not stupid, careless or inept.

    It makes me a human.

    Humans make mistakes and that is what this was.

    Even with all the systems, checking and double checking… at the end of the day we are human beings who are innately imperfect.

    If you’ve made a mistake lately it doesn’t make you stupid, inept or incompetent. It doesn’t make you unqualified or careless. It makes you a human.

    169: [PA] U.S. News & World Report Ranks PA the #2 Healthcare Profession... Now What?

    169: [PA] U.S. News & World Report Ranks PA the #2 Healthcare Profession... Now What?

    Well the PA Profession has done it again. PA is named as the #2 profession in the healthcare sector and #4 overall for all professions in the 2023 U.S. News & World Report. Dive into how these rankings are generated, what they are based upon, and the predictions that exist for the growth of the PA profession in the coming ten years. The reality is that these rankings, although they provide incredible visibility and awareness for the general public about the PA profession in general… they don’t change your specific role or job situation at all. Your frustrations are still the same. Your burnout still exists. Let’s take an eyes wide open look at what you can do about your specific situation so that you feel better about your job as a PA and start feeling like the best you can feel.

    168: [MONEY] Stop Making These Mistakes When It Comes to Investing with Kristin Burton, PA-C

    168: [MONEY] Stop Making These Mistakes When It Comes to Investing with Kristin Burton, PA-C

    For me, whenever I learn the numbers, the logic or the formulas behind something, I immediately believe it and buy into it on a deeper level. It feels so much more concrete to me and not so arbitrary. One thing that I’ve been super interested in and invested in over the year is learning how to better manage my money and invest it wisely. There is a LOT of advice on the internet (looking at you Instagram) for investing and wealthy building, but I’m one of those people who needs to hear the facts behind the situation before I’m going to start following that advice.

    Thankfully, my friend Kristin Burton shares those facts on this episode (and I could not agree more with her advice when it comes to financial independence!) I love chatting about finances and learning how to take the vital signs on your current financial situation. There is always something to be learned in discovering how to grow your wealth and improve your freedom when it comes to money.

    167: [PA] But New Grads Are Willing To Work For Less...

    I heard this from the mouth of a PA with 20-years of experience last week "but there are new grads out there who are willing to work for so much less than I am". & I couldn't help but share my thoughts about how we can encourage new graduates to advocate for themselves and how to dismantle this limiting belief that you shouldn't ask for a raise because someone else will do it for less.

The PA is REALLY in!

I have been enjoying Tracy’s podcasts for over a year and am very happy with her recent rebrand. As a fellow PA / Mom, she is so relatable and I love how listening has allowed me to reframe my outlook on professional & personal goals.
