Overcoming Burnout

In my career as a major gifts officer, I participated in three successful capital campaigns.  By the end of the third, I was burned out.  Fried.  It was the greatest challenge of my career.

During this time, instead of enjoying my weekends fully, I wasted many Sundays stewing about Monday morning.  Sound familiar?  Mentally and physically exhausted, I couldn’t shake my feeling of overwhelm, even on the weekends.  I still want back my lost Sundays.

My burnout became a blessing when I sought ways to work and live that were better aligned with my core values.  I graduated from a rigorous coach-training program at UC Davis Extension, and today I am an Associate Certified Coach who is passionate about helping nonprofit staff become their best selves.

Are you losing your Sundays?  As a hard-working employee of a nonprofit, you may be emotionally and physically depleted.

You may be looking for hope.
