- Between Grit and Grace: Where Successful People Live - Dr. Sasha Shillcut

Sasha K. Shillcutt, MD, MS, F.A.S.E., headshot

Dr. Sasha Shillcutt.  A physician, gender equity researcher, speaker, author, wife, mom of four amazing kids, and Founder/CEO of Brave Enough. I founded Brave Enough after a successful career climb as a clinical scientist and national expert. Despite my professional success, I found myself empty and deeply lonely. So... I started a community! Women need each other and we're at our best when we are showing up for ourselves and each other. Through my book, talks, courses, coaching, membership site, and in-person events, I have inspired tens of thousands of women to believe in themselves and their innate value. I have taught women in medicine to take control of their time and, in doing so, take back control of their life.
