Meet Dr Olivia Ong
Physician. Professional Speaker. Author. Medical Leadership Coach.
At 28, my life changed in a split second when I was hit by a car and rendered a paraplegic. I had to learn to walk again while advancing my career as a dual-trained rehabilitation medicine and specialist pain medicine physician.
As a doctor, this patient experience of pain management gave me a unique perspective that has allowed me to become a renowned leader and workshop facilitator in the world of pain care and management.
The accident also re-awakened me. I realised I didn’t want to let life pass, feeling out of balance and exhausted. So I discovered self-compassion and creative development tools that would help me thrive at work and home.
Now, I inspire fellow healthcare professionals to lead a more balanced life so they can restore their energy and rediscover their passion.
