I love it when other people share their stories. I am fascinated with just how different we all are. People respond to success and failure, and everything in between, in vastly different ways. Nearly all of us feel stuck at some stage in our life, be it personally or in our careers. It is often through the support of others that we can overcome challenges. Female doctors have some very unique challenges they face in their career. Hopefully hearing how other female doctors have navigated their way through a career in medicine will provide great benefit and support. I am really excited to be involved in helping facilitate this through interviewing doctors and sharing some of my own life experiences.
I had my first child in early 2016 and came back to work in a part time capacity later that year. Although I enjoy my professional working days, at this stage I have no intention of increasing my days in the office. I love the days I get to play in the park, find lost toys and constantly unpack and repack kitchen drawers. When I get the time I enjoy Pilates and yoga. I also love getting lost in a good book.
I entered the finance world in 2014. Prior to that I spent a decade working as a Psychologist. I moved industries as it was time for new challenges and to try something different: in saying that, I find there are so many similarities between psychology and finance. I see the foundation of financial advice as being about forming good relationships with people, listening, and knowing what questions to ask.
