Our founder, Brie Taralson, was a healthcare leader on the career climb when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. A wife and mom of two young children (including an infant), and a senior leader of several regional clinics, life before the pandemic was already full. The permanent crisis mode that healthcare organizations acted in led Brie and colleagues to burnout.
