In this episode of Thrive Bites, I sat down Dr. Charmaine and we tackled the hard struggle of physician burnout and broke it down bit by bit and chatted about her personal health/mental journey and how she triumphed with her own platform!
She has served countless patients, taught resident doctors and medical students for 13 years as Clinical Faculty at St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor in Michigan, following Emergency Medicine Residency training at Duke University Medical Center. She has been honored as a nominee for the Golden Apple teaching award by the resident doctors she teaches several years in a row. She is an active member of the Clinical Practice Committee for the Emergency Medicine Physician Group, PC. She serves as a Peer Coach providing feedback on communication techniques for Emergency providers and facilitates talks with healthcare providers about burnout, wellness, and work-life balance/integration. Most recently, Dr. Gregory has had the honor of being a contributing author of the books, The Chronicles of Women in White Coats and Thinking About Quitting Medicine Volume 2.
Outside of medicine, her passion to pursue wellness and work-life balance led to the establishment of the virtual greatness and wellness coaching company Fervently Fit with Charmaine, LLC. Wellness, fitness coaching, and holistic nutritional supplementation serve as an extension of clinical service by focusing on preventative methods for health and wellness maintenance. She is also a trained Physician Coach, helping colleagues find meaning and direction when most needed.
In addition, she is certified to teach live group fitness classes in an MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) and offers group fitness instruction to colleagues at national meetings.
