I Dreamed Of Being A Mom, But I Didn’t Dream About The Struggles Of Parenting

I had two dreams when I was young: to be a pediatrician and become a mom. My dreams did become reality when I walked across the stage on my father’s 50th birthday to be awarded my medical degree while being newly pregnant with my first child. Over the next few years, I was blessed to become a mom on three separate occasions. Each child brought incredible joy and difficult challenges.

And then this happened…

When I was a pediatric resident, my infant daughter was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. I lived in a world filled with surgeries, chemotherapy, lines, tubes, and medications. I allowed the stress and chaos of parenting a child with medical challenges consume me. Years later, she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and this brought on more challenges along with my other two children’s mental health diagnoses. I became lost in a world that revolved around navigating the health concerns of my children. Parenting my children through the years has brought incredible challenges and difficult joy.

I have loved caring for children with chronic health issues during my time as a pediatrician and allergist/immunologist. I could easily educate my patients about what they needed to do to improve their health, but it was much more difficult to teach them how to do it.

Then I discovered life coaching…
I learned the skills needed to facilitate behavior change in me. The tools I learned from life coaching gave me an exciting, peaceful, and joyful life. I understand that the health of the child depends on the well-being of the parents. As a certified life coach, I am able to share the tools with parents of children with medical challenges. They can reclaim their lives and learn to thrive!

I love working with people just like you!
