YARA DEMO, MD

Member, Coaching for Institutions

Specialty: Neurology: Subspecialty in Epilepsy & Clinical Neurophysiology

Location: Chicago, IL

Coaching Certification: Organization and Leadership Coaching Certificate, Northwestern University. Life coach Certificate, The Life Coach School

Coaching Specialty: Academic

Coaching Organizations: Coaching for institutions (CFI), Harvard Institute of coaching (IOC), Physician Coaching Alliance (PCA)

Programs: 12 weeks program that integrate life coaching and leadership/executive coaching

Interest & Experience: Work life integration, burn out, leadership, creating psychological safety and intentional culture at work, relationships at home and work.

I am a mother, wife, practicing neurologist and a life coach. Up until recently, I was struggling with burn out and moral injury. I went straight from college (UCLA) to medical school (Northwestern University) then to neurology residency, and two fellowships after that (Northwestern University). I was always on the go, no time to stop. I was very successful on the surface, but I reached a point where I could not recognize me any more. I was burned out. I was not living my life, I was merely surviving. I approached life as obstacles to overcome and tasks to complete, rather than my ONE LIFE to live and enjoy. I was cynical, resentful, and, let us face it, angry most of the time. For a period of time, I accepted that this is the “normal” life of a working mother. Then I discovered coaching. Coaching has transformed every aspect of my life.  Through coaching I re-learned a simple fact: MY thoughts create MY feelings! WHAT?! Seriously! Sounds so simple, but this realization was life changing. All of my feelings: frustration, cynicism,  anger (the list goes on) were a result of MY thoughts. Through coaching I learned to manage my thoughts, be deliberate and choose thoughts that SERVE me. This is exactly the work I want to do with other physicians> I want to help doctors unpack their feelings and thoughts and leverage their brain to create THE EXACT LIFE they want.

MANEESHA AHLUWALIA, MD

Member, Coaching for Institutions

Specialty: Internal Medicine & Infectious Diseases, Locum

Location: Baltimore, MD

Coaching Certification: The Life Coach School

Coaching Organizations: CFI, EWP

Programs: 12 weeks, 1:1, Life Coaching

Interest & Experience:  

You don't have to know what you want coaching on; we can coach on anything.

"I'm starting to be nicer to myself rather than so hard on myself.  Turns out, it's kinda nice to love on myself the way I love on others." That's what we create together.

I've been through burnout in full time medicine and a complete transition to Locums ID+Life Coaching+competitive tennis+property management+divorced and childfree by choice. I know infertility, wt loss and body fat % drop, ultimatums in marriage, IUI, IVF, pregnancy losses, D&Cs, embryo adoption, ongoing divorce, certification in coaching, entrepreneurship as a Life Coach, managing properties post divorce, becoming a published author, losing a close friend.  Coaching made much of this easier than it could have been.  Delightful side effect - relationships with relatives (especially Mom and Dad), friends, and romantic partners have become lighter, easier, more joyful while being able to deal with grief from recent losses in life.  Fun fact: I've toured with Doctors Without Borders in Kenya, Cambodia and Uganda. 

If you want to create peace and quiet in your head, strengthen your self trust and strengthen your unconditional self love so that you can navigate your life with ease, then let's go!

WENDY SCHOFER, MD, FAAP, DIPABLM

Member, Coaching for Institutions

Specialty: Pediatrics

Location: Chesapeake, VA

Coaching Certification: Certified Health & Wellness Coach (Wellcoaches); Certified Life & Weight Coach (The Life Coach School)

Coaching Organizations: Coaching for Institutions (CFI), Physician Coaching Alliance (PCA)

Programs: Individual and group coaching

Organizations: American Academy of Pediatrics - Virginia Chapter Obesity Champion and Co-Chair of Provider Wellness Committee; Uniformed Services East Chapter Member-at-Large

Interest & Experience: My passion as a pediatrician-coach is to help you parent without the food and body drama. We focus on what really matters and create the foundation for healthy life-long relationships with food, body and family.

Additionally, I help physicians design the life and career that is built around your priorities. Lifestyle design, burnout recovery, time management, charting efficiency, communication, health goals, weight loss, relationships… bring it all!

I am a general pediatrician who has 20 years in clinical pediatric practice ranging from military primary care, to locums, to hospitalist and urgent care for a free-standing children's hospital. I bring my experience having difficult conversations, supporting parents through emotional and behavioral challenges, transitioning (repeatedly!) in the military, and using lifestyle as medicine to coaching. I have experienced burnout and now practice prevention tools daily. I have a special place in my heart to help parents frustrated with food fights, food rules and fears of obesity to address their own weight concerns and become the role model for health in their family.

MIRIAM RHEW, MD

Member, Coaching for Institutions

Specialty: Pediatrics

Location: Northern California

Coaching Certification: The Life Coach School

Organizations: American Academy of Pediatrics - Chapter 1

Coaching Organization: Coach for Empowering Women Physicians

Interest & Experience

I am a general pediatrician and medical director in a group private practice in Northern, CA.  I initially came to coaching through a program for weight loss where I lost weight that I carried from middle school through thought work rather than focusing on diet and exercise.  In the process, I discovered the power of life coaching to transform not just my external appearance but more importantly to find my authentic self and make a transformation from the inside out.  At this same time, our office started changing our pediatric practice to become more trauma informed.  Much like coaching, this involves focusing our care away from “what’s wrong with you” and “what happened to you” to “what’s right with you”.  In turn, we are increasing resilience and healing from burnout from a place of wellness not only for our patients and their families but also for ourselves. 

I love coaching all women physicians and physicians in training to help them uncover their authentic selves with an expertise in coaching first and second generation Americans who have goals that include self care to increase resilience, healing from burnout, leadership and transformational change in primary practice, intentional cross cultural trauma informed parenting, and weight loss

URSULA LANG, MD PHD

Member, Coaching for Institutions

Specialty: Pathology: Subspecialty in Dermatopathology

Location: San Francisco, CA

Coaching Certification: The Life Coach School

Coaching Specialty: Academic

Interest & Experience: I am a physician-scientist, proud mom, loving wife, fierce friend, salsa dancing Latina and a mindset life coach. After finishing my clinical training, I decided to do a combination of post-doc (80%) and clinical (20%). I was fortunate to find excellent mentors, but that did not alleviate the feeling of imposter syndrome I felt. Together with the birth of my daughter and no family close by, each day felt like an impossible challenge. It seemed like I was never enough at any one thing and stretched thin in all three areas of research, clinical and family. Not knowing any differently, I adapted to the situation as I always had. Serendipitously, I found coaching through a friend, and it opened my mind to how our thoughts ultimately create our results. Through daily thought work, I no longer saw life happening to me, but rather gained my power back to live intentionally. I started taking massive action towards helping to change the system and join a community of like-minded women physician-scientists with goals of creating more diversity, equity and inclusion. The consequences of the pandemic also amplified the struggles that my physician-scientist colleagues were experiencing. I knew I could help through coaching. Now I see how much coaching can benefit physicians at all levels of training, and I’m thrilled to be in a position to make a difference.

Organizations: American Academy of Pediatrics, Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine, Mindful Healthcare Collective

Coaching Organizations: CFI, EWP, AMWA, MD The Mindful Doctor Coaching: Mindful Life and Parent Coaching for Physicians.

Programs: 1:1 Individual 12 week coaching program available, 1:1 Private coaching & group coaching

Interest & Experience: I help women physicians go from feeling overwhelmed to empowered by using Life Coaching and Mindfulness. As a life and parent coach, I work with physicians who are committed to change, stepping into the best possible version of themselves. Coaching and mindfulness came into my life when I was struggling personally and professionally to find balance and truly “have my own back”. I would easily doubt myself and judge myself for not being “perfect”.  These approaches transformed my mindset and opened up a world of possibilities for me and now I share that tool with fellow physicians. 

I am a pediatrician, integrative physician, life and parent coach, certified mindfulness coach, wife and mom to two boys. I have spent 12 years working in private practice, working for Permanente Medical Group/Kaiser Permanente and taking some time off to raise my boys. I am a dancer, swimmer, novice gardener and baker. 

On the journey back to myself, I found coaching and Mind Body Medicine through integration of mindfulness and I am one of the founding members of the Mindful Healthcare Collective. I hope to help others find themselves and learn to live a life full of purpose, passion, and most importantly joy.

Specialty: Internal Medicine

Location: Kona, Hawaii 

Coaching Certification: ICF Certified Life Coach, Certified Money Coach

Coaching Organizations: CFI, AMWA coaching committee, OTO women coaching women

Programs: 8 week money coaching program, 1:1 and in groups, Individual life coaching

Interest & Experience: Burnout/moral injury, stress, work life integration, financial wellness, lifestyle medicine, mind-body-spirit medicine.

I worked as a hospitalist and consultative internist for 16 years. I held multiple leadership
positions, as well as was faculty involved in teaching medical students and residents. I struggled with burnout for a long time but felt trapped. The story in my head was that I was the primary breadwinner and my family needed me to keep working. I had no clue about our financial situation, and somehow in the depths of despair, I never thought to figure it out.

When it all got too much, I had to quit. We moved to Hawaii and along the way, I realized that my financial fears were unfounded.

I became an ICF Certified Life coach and a Certified Money Coach(CMC)® to help other women who may be in a similar predicament.

I have coached physicians around burnout/moral injury, work-life integration, relationship challenges as well as helping them sort out transitional phases in their lives.

Deep listening, asking meaningful questions and allowing my clients to reveal their answers to themselves are powerful coaching techniques that I utilize to enable change in their lives.
I now have time and financial freedom to create and live the life of my dreams. I help my clients achieve the same.

Member, Coaching for Institutions

Specialty: OB/GYN

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Coaching Certification: LCS

Coaching Organizations: CFI, WIWC

Programs: 8 wk Program: 1:1 weekly coaching. ‘Time for Me’ where I help busy working women learn not only the how-to's of time creation for self care, but explore also the why’s. By the end of the program, they will be able to consistently create free time and be empowered to protect it!

Interest & Experience: Time management especially in how it relates to procrastination, perfectionism, self confidence, self love and care. I experienced workplace trauma/burnout which drove me to leave my safe, conventional medical position. Coaching showed me that no matter how much I criticized and punished myself, I can never change that circumstance at work.  I now live intentionally to be free of constant self judgment & let go of perfectionist beliefs. I enjoy helping other physicians embrace their own self forgiveness, compassion & love.

KETAN KULKARNI, MD

Member, Coaching for Institutions

Specialty: Peds Hem Onc

Location: Halifax, Canada

Coaching Certification: Life Coach School, Executive leadership certificate, CMA Joule core certification and many other leadership courses

Programs: 12 weeks, 1:1, group coaching, Legendary quest program (with Francis Yoo) and several others

Interest & Experience: I, Dr Ketan Kulkarni, am a physician, a clinician researcher, a scientist, a passionate entrepreneur, an ardent advocate of financial literacy and independence with alternative income streams, an avid learner, a traveler, a photographer, an artist (and art enthusiast and antique collector) and a music buff. I live and work in Halifax, Canada.


While I worked extremely hard for the last 6 some years (after 14 years of training) to establish my academic program and got my first academic promotion in 5 years, I also realized that a range of limitations and challenges including red tape, system issues and politics exist in traditional pathways of medicine that may not be by itself enough fulfilling in the long run. I saw that people, colleagues and experts from all walks of life, regardless of their stage of career and their titles faced similar issues and were often burnt out. They were unhappy. They were not flourishing. Their “well-being” was not apparent. As well, I realized that physicians aren’t usually well versed in business and finance and often shy away from excellent money management. 


Thus, evolved my vision to connect with, network, and collaborate with like-minded individuals who are interested in mastering their own lives and destiny. I wanted to learn as well as share my knowledge and experience and develop models that support a balanced, successful lifestyle, promote career longevity and satisfaction. I participated in several leadership training courses as well as self-learning over the last 4 years. Thereafter I completed Dalhousie Executive Leadership Certificate course. More recently I obtained coaching certification (Life Coach School) and have been actively coaching busy professionals on a variety of platforms. I am continuing to gain more skills and training in the area. While I am a passionate SELF (success, entrepreneurship, leadership, and finance coach), I realize that outer excellence is a result of inner excellence. Well-being is supremely important. I have been able to develop several models based on a variety of resources and evidence to pursue and develop inner excellence followed by outer excellence that I’m happy to share. 


My coaching ethos is the ability to explore one’s vision with clarity, develop a deep sense of purpose, engage and motivate others to strive to achieve the goals that assist in realizing the vision.  I intend to create value that permanently and positively adds to humanity and the world at large. My core values are excellence, creativity, and addition of meaning that would lead to a deep sense of satisfaction, joy and fulfillment.


I am happy to assist to recognize, realize and live your best vision !!
