Dr. Carolyn Messere

Carolyn Messere is a former colon and rectal surgeon who now runs Soul Deep Wellness. She stopped practicing medicine because she saw the pain that so many of her colleagues were suffering as medicine becomes more depersonalized and formulaic. She had, herself, been through burnout, and found her way out the other side. Through her own experience and additional training as a coach, she now offers a program called Finding Magic in Medicinn for people who practice on the frontlines of medicine and want to fall back in love with medicine.
