Show Notes

Do you have a strong personality that is often misunderstood?  Do you want to understand how to be more present in your work and home life?

This week’s guest is Lori Atkins, MD an OBGYN. She was one of those little girls that always wanted to be a doctor.  She left home at 15 and went to college on a wing and a prayer.  She earned her undergraduate degree at Baylor University and her medical degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.  She did a residency at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas.  

One of her nurses, Jen Villegas describes her as “a brilliant surgeon...far and away the best surgeon I work with.  She has unbelievable intuition. It’s almost like she knows what’s going to happen before it actually happens.”

What’s rare about Lori is she’s much more than just a doctor. She’s a business owner.  She entered private practice in 1996, and since graduating residency has built THREE successful practices and helped to nurture and promote the career of her partners as they have joined her.  

She has been a mentor to many during her busy career and knows a thing or two about growing a business.

Fitness and a healthy lifestyle have always been important to Lori and have been a priority in her life. She began teaching yoga in 2007. She is a 1200 hour certified Baptiste Yoga instructor.  She is married and a mother of 2!

Listen in while I deconstruct what it takes to make a difference in the lives of those around you.
