Join me for a deeply inspiring and insightful conversation with Dr. Michelle Choi, a board certified Internal Medicine Doctor who left her traditional career to become a podcaster. For most of her career, Dr. Michelle worked in the inpatient setting as a hospital-based specialist and in the primary care setting for the last four years, when she decided she didn’t want to lie anymore. She believes that the way in which healthcare is structured in the United States, the primary focus of healthcare is not health, but the business our health creates. 

Dr. Michelle feels we are not doing enough to get to the underlying causes of what is causing illness.  And after years of frustration, she decided to leave the career she’s worked her whole life for, in search of what contributes to our feeling whole.  Dr. Michelle is the host of Lost or Found Podcast.  You can find her at

  • Michelle’s career transition journey and what she’s learned

  • Michelle’s most excellent mantra that got her through
