Anna Yusim, MD

Role: Executive Coach

How Did We Meet?

Ashley Cheung, Principal and Founder of Virtual Patent Gateway (VPG), connected with Dr. Yusim after Ashley read her book, Fulfilled:  How the Science of Spirituality Can Help You Live a Happier, More Meaningful Life. Ashley had previously come across the Women of Impact podcast where Dr. Yusim was interviewed by Lisa Bilyeu.  Dr. Yusim’s candidness and poise made an impression, after which Ashley invited Dr. Yusim to be the first expert interviewed for her new Virtual Water Cooler Chat podcast.

Dr. Yusim and I connected during the podcast as two immigrants sharing our histories and journeys, which subsequently guided us to explore our soul purposes.  In April, we will offer our very first workshop together on Virtual Patent Gateway’s platform on the topic of Transforming Fear Into Greatness:

Workshop - Transforming Fear Into Greatness

According to the International Coaching Federation, coaching is defined as a partnership with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.  Coaching is a client-driven process that is distinct from other service professions, such as counseling, mentoring, consulting, and training.
