An Intimate Conversation with Dr. Stephanie Byerly: The Physician Healer
My guest, Dr. Stephanie Byerly, is an Academic Anesthesiologist, Certified Life Coach for Women Physicians, and a mother of two amazing daughters.
After experiencing trauma during her childhood and teenage years, and then having her marriage end in divorce, she suffered a major episode of burnout from the personal and professional challenges. She found a way out of burnout and understood she had to find the peace, joy, and happiness she wanted in her life.
Becoming a Life Coach changed her life in unbelievable ways. Her training, along with her own experiences of dealing with trauma, addiction, and burnout, provided her with the tools to impact the lives of other women, and especially women physicians, by showing them a way out of “survival mode” back to a life of personal fulfillment, joy, happiness, and realizing they are enough just the way they are.
In this episode we talk about:
Thinking about your career and leadership journey who or what may have been instrumental in that decision?
What does a day as a women physician on the frontlines look like? Whom do you serve? What challenges do you face?
Define for us what self-care means to you and what self-care looks like when it comes to being a woman on the front lines during this pandemic?
Why is diversity in leadership as it pertains to having more women physicians vital to healthcare? When we look at the pandemic and how the lid has been lifted and exposed healthcare ad workplace disparities, how would the ability to retain women in healthcare leadership diversity help reduce those disparities and improve care?
What would it take for organizations to support women in healthcare, especially during these times?
What would you say to someone who is hesitant about getting vaccinated? What myth would you like to debunk?
What do you want people to know about this pandemic and how we can all move forward to a safer and healthy environment?
