You’re understaffed – there’s so much more work and pressure, you can’t keep up


Morale is at an all-time low, and work is frustrating and demoralizing


Lives are a stake! You face a heavy responsibility, day after day


Everyone is a critic and you can’t do anything right


It’s taking an emotional toll, you feel disconnected from your team and those you serve


You’re caring, empathetic, responsible – but you’re thinking of quitting or moving on

Meet Gina

As a first-generation Canadian, my Portuguese immigrant parents instilled a strong work ethic in me, and I always believed working hard, with heart, was just a part of life. Maybe you can relate.

But one day I woke up and realized I was on a treadmill, putting one foot in front of the other, and not really living the life I wanted. There’s a difference between working hard and burning out.

As an RN and then in my career managing public health programs and leading through several public health emergencies at the federal level in Canada, I’ve had first-hand experience with heavy workloads and the pressure to perform.

Learning how to find joy and balance in my life was essential to survive, and the key to building a life that is energizing instead of draining.

A few kind words

“I credit Gina with having saved my career and my sanity in the early days of the COVID19 pandemic. Working with her was a lifeline. What I’ll remember most was that her compassionate listening allowed me to reconnect with the purpose of my work at a time when I felt like there was no hope. I never knew coaching could be so therapeutic!”

Laura S.

Emergency Medicine Physician, NYC Hospital

The coaching experience I had with Gina was one of the most impactful I’ve ever had. I regularly find myself returning to the lessons I learned with her. Gina taught me to be true to who I am whilst leaning into that which was uncomfortable.”

Robin Buckland

“I have more energy, I’m able to get more done and all while having more fun in life. Overall, I feel like I am living so much more as my authentic self – balancing meaningful work and finding joy in life.”
