Navigating Burnout and Prioritizing Well-Being During Turbulent Times

Sue Willman, Vice President, Care Collaboration at Athenahealth

Sue Willman, VP Chronic Condition Management at Athenahealth

In the past few years, as we’ve navigated through turbulence and stress, the adage that we need to “place the oxygen mask on ourselves, before we can help others” has become more relevant. In this episode, Mentor Sue Willman (VP Care Collaboration for Athenahealth) shares her powerful story of living this truth.


Sue was driven to change her personal narrative and self-expectations after enduring an overwhelming amount of stress that included the loss of parents, a series of new jobs, moving from the family home due to surgery, and having 3 of her adult children return home during Covid (one of whom needed support with long haul symptoms). The openness and wisdom that Sue shares during this conversation will resonate with many of us as an inspiring example of how to ride the waves of change.
