Healing Journey from Pregnant with Breast Cancer to Vibrant Mompreneur: Kristen Chester

Walk through Kristen Chester’s healing journey as she describes learning about her positive breast cancer diagnosis when she was 6.5 months pregnant with her son.  Thankfully Kristen had the absolute best mindset for this journey and her son is healthy and thriving.   With a strong family history of breast cancer, Kristen first expressed concern very early in her pregnancy that there may be an issue.  It was initially brushed off as “normal”.    Kristen then had to take on chemo treatments with her son still in utero and continued aggressive treatment as soon as he was born.  She then had a newborn, chemo treatments, and had to undergo a double mastectomy with reconstruction.   All the while, she utilized her time in the hospital while healing to research and create a business!  The business idea of bright, colorful, vibrant caftans and jumpsuits came about as she just didn’t look and feel like herself through her chemotherapy with the hair loss, and the fact she was wearing oversized men’s t-shirts and baggy sweatpants.  There was a need for sustainable clothing that would help her and other women feel powerful, strong, and beautiful with bold, bright, colorful patterns.   This is the journey behind the creation of Casa Danu. Learn more about Kristen and check out her clothing here: https://www.casadanu.com/   ___________________   Guest Bio: Kristen is the founder/"chief caftanista" of Casa Danu - an up-and-coming sustainable women's wear brand focused on creating bold, pattern-forward clothing that helps women bring out the most colorful, enlivened, and powerful versions of themselves.    Kristen is a recovering workaholic who left her successful and high-powered corporate gig to pursue her passion after being diagnosed with Breast Cancer.    Kristen is learning how to navigate the world of being an entrepreneur, while simultaneously being a mom and cancer survivor. Her mission is to help other women find and unearth their bold, vibrant spirit, no matter what challenges they are going through. ___________________ Subscribe to this podcast and download your favorite episodes to listen to later: AppleSpotify RSS Feed ___________________   ⚕️ Are you a woman healthcare professional who is struggling to juggle everything in your personal and professional life?   💯 I understand!

053: Establishing A Space for Psychological Safety For Healthcare Professionals with Liam Caswell

There is a growing demand to create a space for psychological safety in the healthcare industry. It’s vital for producing a high-performance team.   Healthcare professionals focus on the psychological safety of their patients. They look after patients to the best of their abilities and ensure that they’re set up for success. However, this safe space is often not offered to themselves or their colleagues.  In this episode, I have another astounding conversation with Liam Caswell, a High Performance Nurse Coach. With 10 years of international healthcare experience, he aims to coach, educate, and transform the lives and careers of nurses. In our conversation, Liam emphasized the importance of setting a space for psychological safety in the workplace. If the healthcare industry really wants to establish this, they’ll create an environment that stimulates self-awareness and self-compassion, so nurses can perform as their authentic selves. TOPICS WE DISCUSSED INCLUDE: Getting clear about your why in life (04:38) Why we need to increase our tolerance for failure (12:11) The benefits of establishing psychological safety in healthcare (18:45) Why self-awareness and self-compassion matter (26:05) Reframing burnout as something positive (31:52) How to step into your authentic self (35:20) CONNECT WITH LIAM CASWELL https://www.liamcaswell.com/   Connect with Liam on LinkedIn Connect with Liam on Facebook and Instagram Listen to Liam’s podcast, High Performance Nursing, here.

What if I told you that there’s no such thing as a pain receptor, there is only the message your brain is sending you about the situation you’re in? Sounds insane right? It’s not! Listen in as I chat with Andrea Moore about chronic pain and what the underlying cause is for most people.  Andrea and I have known each other for many years now. We’ve both been in masterminds together and we’ve enjoyed building our businesses alongside each other. Honestly, when I found out that there was another physician in the room with me, I got super excited.  One of the things Andrea has struggled with most of her life is chronic pain, and the crazy thing is she didn’t even know it was weird. Ever since she was a young kid she’s had chronic joint pain all over her body. So much so that simply sitting through lectures for school was extremely uncomfortable.  It was this lived experience that informed her decision to go into first physical therapy and now she’s a doctor studying the role of the brain in our response to pain.  Listen as she shares her story and gives us some great takeaways on the things that could be contributing to chronic pain in our bodies. Believe it or not, it’s all about mindset. That’s not to say that this applies to everyone, there are certainly cases that don’t fit the mold, but overall, our brain is responsible for our pain.  So what makes our brain send out those signals? Listen in to learn more.  “Pain is a message our body is trying to send us.” Andrea Moore DPT   In this episode: [02:00] Welcome to the show, Dr. Andrea Moore! [02:15] She shares who she is and what she does. [04:47] Listen as she discusses why chronic pain is her mission. [06:14] Andrea talks about her journey with chronic pain. [10:03] I share my journey with chronic pain. [12:33] She discusses the three main pieces she likes to explore with people. [16:04] “For many women being connected with their bodies is perceived by the nervous system as inherently unsafe.” [18:04] Chronic pain is a sensitization of the nervous system. [23:01] My symptoms didn’t improve when I did all the external things I could do, then I had to look for alternative ways to deal with the pain. [26:20] Medicines aren’t a great long term solution but they are a great bridge to get you ready for the inner work you need to do. [29:51] A lot of female physicians are hiding their chronic pain issues in the closet. [30:40] She shares that a lot of her clients come to her because they want to stay under the radar of the medical system. [34:40] She discusses letting our nervous system know that we are adults and to let the child part go. [37:41] She speaks about her podcast The Unweaving Chronic Pain.

Live UTI Free advocates for females suffering with chronic UTIs – Episode 166

In today’s episode, I interview Melissa Kramer the CEO and Founder of Live UTI free. As a women's health advocate Melissa works closely with researchers, clinicians, and members of the public to ensure the patient perspective is acknowledged, particularly in the area of recurrent urinary tract infection - the second most common infection in adults, globally. In 2017, she founded Live UTI Free, a patient advocacy and research organization with a highly engaged community. 7 million females experience a UTI each year in the United States with about 35% of them having another UTI within 6 months. Many of these reoccurring infections may be caused by an underlying bladder infection that goes undiagnosed and ineffectively treated. My favorite resource they offer is the ‘take to your doctor’ and ‘patient guide’ resources. These are documents that help empower women to speak with their physicians about what they believe they are experiencing. Get these resources and more at www.LiveUTIfree.com. Enjoy the episode!

Abortion in the United States and what's at stake this June – Episode 165

In today’s episode, I interview Madeline Waugh, a social scientist with a focus on reproductive rights in the United States. In this episode, we walk you through the history of abortion in the United States and the present-day situation we find ourselves in. Unfortunately, it feels like most of the world is in chaos so many of us may not realize how close we are in the United States to losing our right to an abortion. In June the Supreme Court will review a Mississippi abortion law and there is a high probability that the court will allow the law to stand. This will cause a domino effect of the elimination of a female’s right to decide what’s best for her and her body. Although this seem very gloom for women’s rights today we still have an opportunity to improve our chances for the future. The opportunity lies in voting, especially in local elections. I recently met Lisa Mead, a woman running for election in my community. If elected, she would be the youngest female County Commissioner and only parent of school aged children. In Wake County North Carolina we have a very important local election on May 17, with early voting beginning April 28. If you live elsewhere, please make sure to check with the Board of Elections to see when your primary election is, many are occurring in the next month! Local elections can have huge impacts on women's rights and health, so it is important to vote. WIth that being said, please share this episode with your networks because female rights may take a huge setback this year but we must be prepared to fight for our right to choose.
