I have been a "Doctor Boss" in emergency medicine for 10 years, working in various community settings and in an academic, inner city Emergency Department in a large academic center for the past 8 years. I am a former victim of burnout who has now found joy and achievement in my career. Even more importantly, I am a mother of 2 beautiful children.
I am an expert in informatics at my institution, where I focus on opportunities and programs to decrease administrative burden and burnout related to the EHR. I am involved in workflow innovations we are striving to create to further reduce the contributors to burnout in both the emergency department and ambulatory care settings. To further my commitment to workplace wellness, I was co-chair of an impactful workgroup addressing women's wellness issues at our institution and creating evidence based recommendations resulting in change.
My last "hat" is a medical student educator who takes joy in supporting my students. I hope that everything I do for wellness will impact the future state of work life in healthcare for them and my junior colleagues.
