In this episode, you’ll learn:

Dr. Hala Sabry is a Board-Certified Emergency Medicine physician, the founder of Physician Moms Group (PMG), and a super mom of five- with two sets of twins!
Being a mother of five has given Hala a unique expertise and skill set to help other parents in the medical field. After years of infertility, she found that balancing motherhood and a career in medicine was challenging. She frequently fought through fear, negative self-talk, and a recurring desire to quit her job in medicine, and she knew other mothers and physicians must have experienced the same struggles. She attributes having a solid support system (PMG) and life coaching in helping her manage her thoughts and reaffirm her “why.”
She created PMG six years ago to offer emotional availability and support to women like her. Although it has become the largest online support network for women physician mothers, with over 115,000 members, Hala is expanding her purpose and outreach to coaching individuals and businesses. She offers high performance coaching to professional women in male dominated professions in quest to fulfill their professional goals and discover the legacy they want to create. In addition, Hala works with health organizations to improve their recruitment and engagement practices to include more women.
Hala is a tenacious advocate for ending sexism and promoting gender and racial equality in the medical field. She believes that as a community leader, she has a responsibility to forge a path for other women and to elevate her fellow physician mothers. She’s collaborated with leading Fortune 500 companies and international organizations to further her work advocating for women physicians, patients, and children.
Dr. Hala Sabry attended the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, where she completed a dual degree program (D.O./M.B.A.). She now lives in Washington State with her family, where she encourages and empowers her sisters in medicine to embrace joy, vulnerability, and abundance. She is passionate about creating her legacy to pass on to her children and community.
