My Story

My mission is to put an end to the burnout epidemic and provide solutions to anyone who is silently suffering in the workplace.

My first experience with burnout came from my management role in healthcare. There came a point where I was put in the position of hiring and training a brand new team. This led to me recruiting and working long hours every day of the week to keep up with the workload (as if healthcare wasn’t stressful enough). My burnout wasn’t a result of my inability to handle stress, it was a result of the lack of critical resources I required to keep the ship from sinking.

I quickly learned that burnout is more than mental. I began to experience pain in my neck and shoulders. The scariest symptom? After many months of working like a machine, I was starting to experience memory loss. It even got to the point where I had to see a cardiologist because I was 100% certain I had a heart condition. I had a holter monitor, MRI and CT scan, only to reveal that I had a healthy heart but I was under a lot of stress which was elevating my blood pressure. Let’s just say none of this was pleasant. For a lack of a better word, the experience was abysmal.

Good health and wellness is the core of our being.

The culture of the workplace was hustle. If you weren’t hustling you were considered lazy. My supervisor was only two doors away and still didn’t pay attention to my wellness. The leaders I interacted with on a day to day basis did not ever say “Hey, why are you working weekends?’ “Do you really need to work late every night?”. I felt like I had to kick and scream to get their attention. Even if I did, it wouldn’t have helped. Good leaders lead with a growth mindset and I was surrounded by a lot of people with a fixed mindset.

There was no camaraderie between other managers and being one of the youngest managers there, I felt misplaced, alone and a misfit. I kept myself up at night asking myself “Why am I suffering so visibly but my symptoms to the people in the office seem invisible?” The people who I called leaders, had developed blind spots (consciously or unconsciously) which contributed to my burnout. Now that I look back, I understand that I was emotionally exhausted. I was cynical and my professional efficacy was reduced. Though my drive and motivation for my team’s success didn’t change. I started to resent the workplace and it felt like “I have to do this to pay the bills”. There was no joy, no sense of belonging and below average support. I felt like I was done.

Utilizing my knowledge from 23 peer-reviewed research articles on infectious disease.

We are living through the first mass trauma since World War 2. Our mental resilience is depleting. Being unable to breathe is helplessness at its prime. Anxiety, shallow breathing and in severe cases, panic attacks, can all be a result of burnout. Why should anyone silently suffer like this in the workplace?

During the pandemic, I launched Wellness Shots. Driven by my desire to educate and empower individuals, organizations and communities. I believe in leading with empathy, compassion and high moral standards.

When the pandemic ends, the impact of this trauma will linger across societies. Our social structure is ruptured and we are faced with new challenges in self-care, leadership, and work-life balance. Burnout is an immediate problem that all workplaces must prioritize. ⁣Both organizational and individual level solutions are required to address burnout, prevent burnout and adopt a grace culture with rest ethic. ⁣Our employees form the foundations for our business and need to be treated as a priority. This begins with creating sustainable work environments and moving away from toxic ones.

For medicine to fulfill its mission for patients and for public health, all stakeholders in the healthcare delivery must work together.

“To be “well” is not to live in a state of perpetual safety and calm, but to move fluidly from a state of adversity, risk, adventure, or excitement, back to safety and calm, and out again. Stress is not bad for you; being stuck is bad for you.”
