Mariana Ruiz began her career as a neurological ICU nurse. She loved the brain and learning about it, so much so that she’d read her first neurology book at 16. But she found herself getting burnt out. She was in constant pain and felt like her body was deteriorating. She moved into transplant coordination, but found the burned out feelings continue due to 24 hour shifts.

After she and her family moved to Texas for her husband’s work, she moved into hospital administration. She was about to oversee three hospitals when her daughter was born prematurely and needed open-heart surgery in her first week of life. She finally realized that the Universe kept knocking her down, telling her “please stop” when she was trying to do too much.
