    As a mother, daughter, wife, pet parent, community member, peer advisor, peer supporter, and mentor, her lived experience has brought personal and observed experiences and challenges related to integrating and balancing work and life, with mental and emotional health. The last 5 years have been dedicated to becoming certified as a professional coach, and exploring the support coaching can bring to us as professionals.

    Dr. Benedetti has learned the importance, influence and impact of our self, our organizations, and our workplace culture on our overall health. Finally, and most importantly – how important it is to honor the deeply personal nature of the challenges we experience. This relates strongly to how coaching can help to create unique solutions for us as individuals working in this profession.
