    93: Why I Quit Medicine

    93: Why I Quit Medicine

    I want to share the story of how it all began and what led me to quit medicine. Part of the reason I started this podcast is tied to my decision to stop practicing as an OBGYN, so this is a great opportunity to share with all of you why I switched paths and the decisions that brought me to this moment in time.
    I’m honored to share my voice and perspective as a working mom who not only lost weight but really has changed many areas of her life. I wanted to connect with fellow working moms and high-achievers like you, so you know that more is always possible in your life. 
    Tune in this week to discover why I quit medicine. I’m sharing my experience of education and how I became an OBGYN so I could serve women, how coaching has changed my life, how The Unstoppable Mom Brain started, and why I ultimately decided to leave medicine and start coaching full-time.
