We CAN do it all... we just need to gain some comfort with mediocrity.
It makes sense to say that we can’t do it all. After all, we’re each just one person, and no one person can do everything, right?
But then you meet someone like Dr. Meghan Herron who seems like she really has done it all--gone to veterinary school, raised two kids, and started an entirely new program of study at OSU--and you can’t help but wonder if maybe there is some way to do it all.
But how? What’s the secret? How can you possibly do everything you both need and want to without going stark raving mad?
Dr. Herron joined me today to talk about her work as a behavioral vet and her philosophy to “doing it all” while protecting your own mental health and avoiding burnout.
Dr. Herron is the senior director of behavioral medicine, education, and outreach at Gigi's, a nonprofit that provides homeless dogs access to quality shelter, veterinary, behavior and adoption services in Columbus, Ohio.
