Dr. Gigi is passionate about her mission.
She knows what it is to have success after success only to feel something is still missing. She understands what it’s like to be a ‘high achiever’ and still always feel like there’s ‘one more thing’ to be done before feeling that it’s ‘good enough’. All the accolades, degrees and accomplishments couldn’t silence that gnawing feeling of dissatisfaction, the slow burn out, that culminated in addiction. Dr. Gigi has spent over a decade doing the deep inner work, coming to understand the dynamics that lead powerful, successful women to burn out in exhaustion. She brings 23 years of practice as a physician, 11+ years of recovery, and a lifetime of being a woman in a male dominated field to her coaching. Through deep presence, compassion and understanding, she lifts her clients into their deepest truths.
She lives to work with high powered women professionals with a proven track record who just KNOW there is something more.
Her mission is to empower them to reclaim their passion, speak so they are heard, and create a life in alignment with their true values and desires.
Dr. Gigi is the creator of an innovative curriculum for medical students and healthcare practitioners that clarifies their values, brings satisfaction throughout their careers, and prevents burn out while increasing patient satisfaction and revenue. Her legacy is to return the heart to healthcare, one medical school class at a time, one physician at a time.
Dr. Gigi earned her Doctorate of Medicine degree from Temple University School of Medicine in 1995, and completed her residency in Emergency Medicine at the Medical College of Pennsylvania in 1998, one of the oldest programs in EM. She is a graduate of Cornell University, completing her degree in 3 years with 2 majors and a minor in English Literature. She obtained her MBA from Coles College Business at Kennesaw State University in 2010.
Dr. Gigi is on a mission to empower physicians and change the conversation in healthcare.
