Our Team
Krista Gregory / Founder and Director
Krista is a Board Certified Chaplain who has worked in healthcare for over 25 years in both adult and pediatric hospitals. Experiencing burnout and witnessing others burnout as well, she founded the Center in 2016 to transform healthcare into a more sustainable environment. Since then, she and her team have researched and developed practical, daily tools that restore medical professionals to their humanity. Krista has also spearheaded efforts to address the systemic factors that contribute to a toxic medical culture, such as improving team and organizational communication. She is a Trained Teacher in Mindful Self-Compassion and co-designer of the Teacher Training for the course “Self-Compassion for Healthcare Communities” with the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion. She is a dynamic speaker, conference presenter, and thought leader in the field of wellness and resiliency.
Phoebe Long Franco/ Research coordinator
Phoebe received her PhD in Educational Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin. As the Research Scientist for the Center, she utilizes quantitative and qualitative methods to understand how resiliency interventions influence healthcare professionals’ well-being and professional fulfillment. She is a Trained Teacher in Mindful Self-Compassion and a Teacher Trainer for the course, “Self-Compassion for Healthcare Communities.” Her research and writing on self-compassion and resiliency can be read in peer-reviewed journals such as the Journal of Clinical Psychology, Self and Identity, Learning and Individual Differences, and the online magazine Greater Good.

The Center for Resiliency is a community of healthcare professionals and friends who believe in this work.  We are who we are because of all of you.  Countless have donated time and advice and suggestions and resources that have been incorporated into what you experience today.  

Some have donated money.  We’d like to thank the following individuals and couples for their generous financial contributions to ensure that we can continue to reach as many healthcare professionals as possible throughout the globe.  We hope you will consider joining them.
