Sunrise over Mountains


Dan Stoltzfus offers a unique blend of vision and real world experience as a medical leader that is difficult to find for those of us with careers in academic medicine. Dan is a thought leader engaging his clients in life’s larger questions of our purpose in the service of our fellow human. He also brings a solid understanding of the fast changing complexities of the medical profession ripe with high burnout rates and a struggle for fulfillment. I began working with Dan at a time when I was at a critical juncture in my own medical career as a physician. Dan was a constant presence helping me negotiate a new path forward by offering well-timed insight, guidance, and a fresh perspective. I will certainly be working with Dan again when I get to the next important fork in the road."
