Hi and welcome.
My name is Stacey Funt. I am a part time practicing physician, a lifestyle
medicine educator, a national board certified health and wellness coach, a Co-Active trained life coach and a wife and mom to boy/girl teen twins. I passionately believe that self care belongs in healthcare for patients,
physicians and other healthcare workers. And so, I create workshops, amazing adventurous retreats, and offer group/one-on-one coaching to support empowered, authentic living with resiliency and self care at the core.
As for my resume, I majored in psychology at Emory University, attended NYU Medical School and did my residency in diagnostic radiology at Mount Sinai Medical Center. As for my passion, I love to connect, create, collaborate and affect change. I also love my family, adventure travel, hiking, food grown in my garden, walking my dog and looking at the night sky.
There are many things I appreciate about my specialty and I am very grateful for it. I also found that as my field and I changed over time, I was feeling like something was missing. I had skills and interests that were not being expressed through that work and I wanted to explore and utilize those parts of myself that were in the dark (pun intended). When I went to medical school, I thought that would be it. But, I went back to school decades later to develop a multi-faceted career that incorporated those other aspects of myself, what I value and how I wanted to show up. I realized that for me, a fulfilling life is when I bring all of who I am to my work, my play and my relationships.
I now give local and national talks and workshops to attendings, residents,
medical students and other healthcare workers on value based living and self care topics. I coach people who want to make changes in their lives. And, I create retreats to spectacular, places for immersion in nature and connection with self and community.
I went through a tough time with my career. For me, I did not have to leave medicine to find joy again. But, I did have to take care of myself differently, realize my own stories and self limiting habits, and take actions that aligned with what I really wanted.
It gives me immense joy and satisfaction to share my work with others.
