Dr. Dorothy’s life story of coming from an orphanage, being raised in the housing projects of South Boston, becoming a Catholic nun, an international airline stewardess, a wife, mother, graduate faculty member, Clinical Instructor at a Medical School, and so much more provides the perfect backdrop for her message of joy, humor, passion and faith as the necessary tools for life.

Values And The Ideal Life

I’ve started doing daily videos, Monday through Friday, which are posted on my YouTube channel, LinkedIn, and my professional Facebook page. Recently, I did one on "What Does Success Mean to You"? I asked that question because success means something different to every one of us. Even if two people say “a happy marriage,” does a happy marriage look identical…

Living To 100+

A client told me recently of a 4-part Netflix series – Live to 100. Since that is my intent most days, I watched it. The documentary host traveled to Japan, Italy, Greece, and more locations interviewing folks where living 100+ years is the norm. The gems of wisdom shared in the learning are amazing. For me, it started with Don’t…

More Than One Thing At A Time – One Focus

Recently I wrote about focusing on one thing at a time, one task, one project, etc. and bringing simplicity into your life. That way of being is a great way to be at peace, resulting in joy and satisfaction with life.

Lives Of Service

Being Fully Alive And Healthy

I was blessed to speak with two potential clients today who have a whole world of experience to share. For each one, the stress of needing to make major life choices, and resisting, even for theoretically justifiable reasons, caused serious health issues. One wonderful man hated his career from the beginning yet felt obligated to support his family and he…

Who Are Your Five People?

This has been a week of change, shifts, growths, and healthcare. Amazing all the things that can fit into one week…  In service to my own self-care, about six months ago I decided to only see clients and patients three days a week. I wanted to take two days a week to work ON my business, expanding it and expanding…

The Gift Of One Thing At A Time

I’ve started doing one-hour conversations for women who want Elevated Leadership. Normally it is the second Tuesday of every month at 4:00 but in August it will be on Thursday the 10th because a family member is receiving her white medical coat as she prepares to begin her medical career.

Moving Beyond A Myth

“The myth of normal is a cloak that disguises the immense diversity and complexity of the human experience, obscuring the truth that we are all vulnerable and flawed, yet capable of extraordinary resilience and growth.”                                                  …

Life Is Quite An Adventure

One day this week I posted on LinkedIn, with a picture from above the clouds and said: “No matter where you are with your business, or your life, it is an amazing adventure to watch how expanded our field of influence is.” A wonderful, hilarious, woman and friend who follows me responded: “Ohhhh, what an adventure! What a trip!” with…
