Finding Happiness and Nursing Career Fulfillment in the Non-Clinical Space
On episode 429 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Shira Page, RN, NP, CLC, the Medical Community Manager for Bobbie, an infant formula startup. In the course of their interview, Keith and Shira discuss how such a passionate and talented nurse practitioner was able to find happiness and career fulfillment in the non-clinical space, specifically the world of medical start-ups.
If you’ve ever had thoughts that perhaps you’d be more content in a non-clinical role where your nursing knowledge and expertise would still be the key to your success, this is a worthy conversation to hear.
Shira Page, RN, NP, CLC, is Bobbie’s Medical Community Manager. Her career has centered around improving the clinical care of people in their most challenging moments. She studied nutrition and dietetics, followed by a Masters in Nursing at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Her clinical expertise is in endocrinology, women’s health, and weight medicine. She worked as a nurse practitioner at Mount Auburn Hospital, focusing on endocrine concerns during pregnancy and postpartum.
After becoming a parent, she saw firsthand the challenges of infant feeding and became a certified lactation counselor (CLC). Shira served as a Medical Director at a continuing medical education (CME) company, designing clinician education to improve patient outcomes and now is the Medical Partnerships Manager at Bobbie, an infant formula startup. She lives outside of Boston with her husband and two daughters.
