I am a freelancer, coach and non-practicing M.D. with extensive experience in the health and wellness industry. I am passionate about helping entrepreneurs and changemakers avoid burnout so they can have more impact.  I love creating efficient workflows and routines so my clients stay grounded, focused and productive.  

My experience in healthcare has given me unique insight into how to acheive work-life balance. It also taught me a lot about how to provide respectful and compassionate customer service. 

To protect your time, energy and focus I can:

  • Manage all incoming communications (fax, phone, text, email) 
  • Provide a daily summary of what needs your attention.
  • Manage customer complaints compassionately and effectively
  • Integrate and manage multiple schedules to help you stay organized (including your family schedule, if so desired)
  • Systematize client intake processes
  • Proofread and copyedit reports, progress notes, or social media posts
  • Upload documents and enter data into EMR’s or CRM’s
  • Help with billing and invoicing
  • Do internet research for blog posts, infographics, and social media blurbs
  • Create content for social media

If you are building a side hustle I also have experience with online course creation, e-commerce platforms (Etsy, Amazon sellers), Facebook ads and creating graphics with Canva.

Here is what you can expect from me:

  • A professional demeanour
  • Clear, proactive communication
  • Excellent attention to detail.
  • Transparency about how I use the time you pay me for
  • Creative problem solving
  • Ability to work under pressure, meet deadlines and multitask
  • Coach-ability
  • A love for collaboration and teamwork.

If you think I am a good fit for your project but need something that is not listed above please reach out. I am a quick study and willing to learn.
