Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle Podcast

This week we’re talking about how to create your passion-filled future in midlife with Dr. Jessie Mahoney.

It’s not that uncommon to feel a vague, nagging sense that something’s off or just doesn’t feel right. And sometimes, this has to do with your career. Unlike other times in your life, it’s also not uncommon to struggle with fixing the problem, even though you may have been pretty good at this kind of problem-solving in the past.

That’s what happened to my guest today and past client, Dr. Jessie Mahoney. As she describes during our interview, she had a great life but deep down, knew that something was a little off and needed to be addressed. It turned out that she was looking for more passion in her life and didn’t have a solution for how to solve that.

Dr. Jessie Mahoney is a master-certified mindful life coach, a certified yoga and mindfulness instructor, a physician wellness expert, and a board-certified pediatrician.  Dr. Mahoney graduated from Dartmouth College, the University of California San Francisco Medical School, and the Life Coach School.  She practiced Pediatrics and was a Chief of Physician Wellness at Kaiser Permanente for over 17 years. At age 50 she pivoted her life to become the CEO of Pause & Presence.

She now coaches high-achieving women, teaches yoga, and leads coaching, yoga, and culinary medicine retreats in spectacular natural locations. Jessie is co-host of the Mindful Healers Podcast and she teaches Mindful Yoga for Healers weekly on Zoom. and has a robust YouTube Yoga channel with the same name.

So as you can see, the career pivot Jessie made sounds pretty exciting. I can’t wait for you to hear her story! Please enjoy this episode.
