Listen along as Louise chats with Riley Thacker, a good friend of Archer and a Nurse at the renowned Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C. In Episode 9, we heard about Riley’s visit to the Shepherd Center to see Archer when she was a high-schooler, as well as her nerves and trepidation beforehand. Bodily awareness can sometimes precede mental awareness, pushing us toward our life’s mission. Listen in for how that life experience truly shaped a career choice. Tune in to learn more about the power of affirmations, medical burnout, a true behind the scenes look at the stressful schedule of a nurse, and even a bit about the early, behind-the-scenes organization of Archer’s artwork company, Slimeyard! Anyone can gain learnings about caring for oneself along with caring for others. From a young nurse’s expertise, straight to your daily life! Anticipate great conversation and lasting lessons in stress-reduction.
