Nurse, leader, advocate. All of these require a sense of courage and calm. It is the same that I bring into Michaela Lindahl & Associates. Working with executives in healthcare and community settings, I am reminded on a regular basis:
“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying ‘I will try again tomorrow’.”
This is one of my favorite quotes which continues to drive me to support healthcare executives in leading for inclusive and people-centered work spaces.
Michaela Lindahl & Associates was born out of that courage. Courage that healthcare leaders and front line healthcare workers need to go back each day, courage that they deserve a healthcare setting that supports them each day. A healthcare setting that brings calm to their storm and props them up in every way as they care for, advocate for, and heal patients.
Healthcare can be chaotic and cumbersome. Working with communities can feel chaotic and cumbersome. As a leader and a nurse, my best approach has always been to instill a sense of calm. We can accomplish what we set out to do, and starting in a place of calm allows each of us to leverage our training, innovation and resilience.

Let's be courageous together.
On the personal side, I'm a mother of three, with an amazing husband, miss the Cascade mountains I grew up in, and love my community in Wyman Park where we have lived for almost 15 years. I am a co-founder of Nurses for Justice Baltimore, and find ways to give back to the nursing profession and community on a regular basis. I am currently coordinating our Neighborhood Response Team, and am grateful for all the ways community has come together in Baltimore to get through COVID-19 & its impact on our everyday lives.
Nurse, leader, advocate - it is courage and calm that gets me through my everyday. Let me help you get through yours.
