Pearls from Peers

“What do you incorporate into your schedule to achieve work-life balance?”


I have a life-long passion for soccer and have been lucky to continually play the sport throughout my medical training and beyond. In 2017 and 2018, I was honored to represent our country by playing for Team USA in the Physicians World Cup. I owe a great deal of thanks to my partners and especially to my family who support and encourage my love of the game.

One outlet is dance. My first-grade report card said, “Lisa likes creative expression through dance.” Well, it’s not a surprise that we have a line dance class in my office for me and the staff every other Thursday before office hours, taught by one of our patients.

Over the last few years, I have really gotten into running when I am outside of work. Several days a week as soon as I get home, I change into running gear and I’m out the door and have even participated in a couple half-marathons. After spending all day in an operating room or clinic, running outside helps me keep my mind and body fresh.
