When you express doubt about your career path, people don't understand.
I remember the struggles I had integrating and prioritising the multitude of demands that I constantly juggled as a professional- working and studying, as a spouse, a parent, a daughter, and often not getting it right.
I felt as if I spent a lot of time surviving and not thriving… But I learned a lot and came out the other side with a rewarding career and a wonderfully, exciting life! Doctors Caring for Doctors is about sharing that journey with you!
I know change is hard. That's why I'll be with you every step of the way.
