Drs. Colin and Sara Taylor have been a united team in life for the past 23 years and in marriage for the past 21 years. In March of 2013, they launched Sara's website Sara T, M.D. dedicated to general wellness, physician wellness and personal development, and learned so much about the pain points their colleagues and families face, as well as approaches to solutions. In October 2016, they co-created Physician for Physicians – an online platform dedicated to physician wellness and personal development, and continue to grow in terms of education, resources and in-person offerings.
To provide some background context, Colin and Sara both grew up in Atlantic Canada - Colin in Prince Edward Island and Sara in New Brunswick. They met during medical school at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, in 1994. Two years later, they got married during medical school and upon graduation from medical school, moved to Calgary, Alberta, to pursue residency training. Sara completed her Family Medicine residency in 2000 and Colin completed his Radiology residency in 2003.
Apart from her 5 years of blogging on Sara T, M.D., Sara has worked in various clinical and nonclinical settings as a Family Physician in both Alberta and Prince Edward Island. Colin has worked as a staff Radiologist in clinics and hospitals, in both Alberta and Prince Edward Island. In the summer of 2017, Colin and Sara relocated their family to beautiful Victoria, British Columbia. After Colin started to show persistent signs of burnout, they made a lifestyle move in the hopes of lowering stress, enhancing autonomy and regaining a sense of control.
Their greatest joys are their two teenaged children who have added a dimension of perspective and purpose to their lives since the days they were born during their residency training. They have focused on living each and every day with them as opposed to just raising them. They also enjoy their downtime at home with their 5 pets, as well as cooking, walking, and yoga.
Colin and Sara have made the changes necessary to live their best lives and will continue to make tweaks along the way. Are you ready to join them?
