Work/Life Balance in Academia: Stress and Anxiety

Feeling stressed lately?

Tune in to our first podcast in the series of Work/Life Balance in Academia titled, "Stress and Anxiety", hosted by the Respiratory Structure and Function Assembly, with Eleshia Morrison, PhD in conversation with our guest speaker Jae Ellard, MS, an author and expert who specializes in behaviors that cause imbalance, disengagement, and distraction.

After years in senior communication roles crafting content for executives, Jae collapsed from stress-related adrenal fatigue. This life-altering experience propelled her interest in human behavior, neuroscience, mindfulness, and organizational relationship systems. Jae has dedicated her life to helping others, both individually and in teams by inspiring awareness and recognition of patterns of destructive behaviors. She holds an MS in Communication Management, and a BA in Broadcast Communication. Jae has taught in over 50 countries to employees at multinational corporations such as Microsoft, Amazon and Expedia. An author of seven books on the topic, she is a columnist on workplace awareness and contributes to healthy living sections and blogs. In 2008, Jae founded Simple Intentions and developed the Mindful Life™ Program to generate intentional conversations to disrupt patterns and create awareness, accountability and action at team and individual levels.

Dr. Morrison received her BS from McGill University and her MA and PhD degrees in Clinical Psychology from The Ohio State University.  She is Assistant Professor of Psychology at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Senior Associate Consultant with the Adult Comprehensive Pain Rehabilitation Center, where she is also Director of Education.
