I am a physician, executive coach, and a university professor of medical education at West Virginia University. My professional interests are in developing resilience and positive character strengths of coaches, mentors, students, and teachers. My approach to coaching has been inspired by positive psychology – appreciative inquiry, character strengths and the mindful awareness practices of Unified Mindfulness. Personally, my contemplative practices have led to greater serenity, resilience, patience, and happiness. Now in my elder years, I am motivated to share it with others.
