In this episode of Veggie Doctor Radio, I interview Sarah Tugender and we talk all about her journey and how she approaches her work, her family and “doing it all”.


About featured guest:

Sarah grew up around hospital and healthcare practices, born when her dad was a first-year medical student at Tufts Medical School. She remembers bringing her dolls to the break room at Sinai hospital, where her dad was a resident, to get stitched up with real stitches. She sipped apple juice and nibbled on saltine crackers in the call room at the hospital where her dad worked.

After graduating college from Boston University with a Marketing and Advertising degree, it was a natural partnership for Sarah to help her dad with those services in his practice. Facebook was born during Sarah's first year of college. She has been immersed in the evolution of social media and the revolution of communication within the business world.

For fifteen years, Sarah has used her passion for health with her drive to free up space in practitioners' schedules to create processes and systems for healthcare practices. This frees up space in their schedule so they don't have to burn the candle at both ends and can avoid the burnout that is prevalent in the industry. She travels up to a dozen times a year to speak on stages across the country. Sarah’s messages include living according to your priorities, incorporating business strategies that work for your network and leveraging the power of social media.

Sarah has personally built two online communities to more than 15,000 people. This has been leverage she's used to spend time with her husband, Dan, and three children, Ella, Brody and Duke. Sarah and her family live on Boston's North Shore where they live a plant-based lifestyle and take advantage of all New England has to offer.
