Hi, I'm Emily -
I created the Fill Up Your Cup Project for you, because I was once a burnt out nurse - overweight, anxious before shifts, low energy on my days off, avoiding the people and activities I loved.
I never dreamed I would become a PICU burnout statistic, but after a year of denial I couldn’t ignore my pain any longer. I knew if I didn’t make a change, I would need to find a new career; that was not an option because deep down, I knew I was meant to be a nurse.
Coming back from burnout took hard work, but I quickly realized I needed to become selfish and put myself first. If I didn’t make myself a priority, I wouldn’t be able to show up for the people I loved most. If I continued down my path of denial, I wouldn’t be able to positively impact my patients and my community.
And so I began to invest in myself. As I started to put myself first and redefine my why, other aspects of my life began to fall into place. I was more aware of what I was consuming and looked for lessons in the hard moments. By teasing out my purpose, I found a niche of nursing which felt more aligned to my values and lifestyle. The small, positive and empowering moments began to build until I realized my purpose wasn’t just to be a nurse, but to also help other nurses who had lost their spark.
I am here to help guide you to living the life you have dreamed about through small changes which lead to big action!
If I can transform my entire life, I know you can too. Let's do it together!
