Crafting a New Career: Kricia Palmer on Leaving Medicine and Starting Over as an Interior Designer
May 22, 2024 Episode 3
Lynn Grogan

There are so many things I loved about my conversation with Kricia Palmer, but one standout is how open and vulnerable Kricia is about sharing what it was like to switch from medicine to interior design mid-career. She talks about feeling unhappy in medicine and being brutally honest with herself about that, and really listening to what she wanted to try next in life.

In particular, we talk about paying attention to how you feel, and letting that be an invitation to dig deeper and ask yourself some questions. Why am I feeling this way? What do I need to pay attention to here?

We also talk about how there’s no certainty in anything we do. We just have to trust our gut, and be willing to try and fail, and know that we can always pick ourselves back up again.

Even if the changes you're considering aren't centered around career, you’ll get a lot from this episode.
