Dr. Wilson has been practicing Emergency Medicine since 1994, after attending Loyola-Stritch School of Medicine in Chicago, and completing her residency at The Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. She retired from clinical practice in June 2019. Wanting to maintain involvement in Medicine, Dr. Wilson became a certified physician peer coach, now providing guidance and support to healthcare professionals. Her 25 years as a hospital-based, board certified physician has afforded great insight into the challenges of medicine. Having seen the evolution of medical practice, and witnessing firsthand how these changes have impacted her colleagues, Dr. Wilson sees coaching as an important tool to address issues of job satisfaction, work/life balance, and burnout among physicians. Dr. Wilson is using “mental fitness” as the framework for her coaching, and helps her clients to shift mindset from negative to positive. She also has a special interest in Clinician Distress Syndrome (AKA Second Victim Syndrome), and offers peer support for those suffering acute, traumatic events.
