Our Speakers

Elisa Chiang, MD, PHD

Elizabeth Chiang, or Elisa for short, is a board-certified ophthalmologist and fellowship trained oculoplastic surgeon as well as a life coach. She dove into the world of personal finance and investing as a graduate student during her MSTP (combined MD/PhD program) and set her mind toward FIRE before the term became popularized. She started off investing in stocks and mutual funds. After reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad, I tackled real estate investing and flipped two houses before graduating medical school.

She put real estate investing inside during residency and fellowship which she truly enjoyed. However, when she became burned out working for a hospital system, she turned again to real estate investing as the avenue to financial independence with the possibility of walking away from medicine. Luckily, her real estate journey included an introduction to coaching and mindset. It was really with coaching, that she was able to overcome burnout and started to design her ideal life now, and not waiting until FIRE. 

She became a certified Life Coach through the Life Coach School so she can help others battle burnout, build wealth, and make every day closer to their ideal life. You can book a free coaching consultation at her website at GrowYourWealthyMindset.com.

Myrdalis Diaz-Ramirez, MD

Becoming an entrepreneur can be in your blood, or you can learn it, then perfect it, or a bit of all of these. The excitement of entrepreneurship allured Myrdalis Diaz-Ramirez since she was a child. Science came later, and the wonders of medicine consumed a considerable part of her life. She designed multiple pain centers through her journey, including her award-winning Comprehensive Pain Center of Sarasota, which she grew and successfully sold. She worked on many other ventures, even in the entertainment world, alongside her husband. She is also a mom to twin teens, trained as an anesthesiologist, interventional pain physician, author, and entrepreneur.During her 25 years medical career, she has witnessed a concerning detrimental shift in the lives of physicians. As a result, it has become her wish and reality to help physicians design their lives to decrease the rate of burnout and allow them to practice medicine under their terms.She created Phyzign to help future generations of physicians design their physician lives.

Expect the main offerings to be released this Winter. It will include a Podcast with many episodes already recorded. It will give the younger generation ideas and tips on topics that should help them plan their physician lives with better information, more intention, and education on the right business tools for the job.She also founded the maxAllure Mastermind.

In this venture, she helps Physician Entrepreneurs through accountability, coaching, and support. It arose from the frustration of not finding a group of like-minded physicians to grow and develop their business ideas in the same forum with their spouses. So, she formed her own group, allowing her husband to have an equal voice as she wanted. Today, this group welcomes Physician Entrepreneurs and their couples, making it the only one in its class.

A unique feature is pairing specific seasoned physician entrepreneurs and participants on particular topics to help them via coaching in their private group sessions. This group has already helped many physicians in very diverse areas, from beginners to seasoned entrepreneurs.Aside from these two companies, she leads 150 physicians at the Women Physicians in Pain Management Investments group, organizing discussions of different financial topics and presenting potential investment opportunities for the members.“I’m honored to take part in the Wealthy Women in Medicine Summit and hope to continue contributing to improving our physicians’ lives.”

Marieke Gardner, MD

Based out of Montreal, Canada, ER Physician and mom to 3 kiddos, Dr Gardner is passionate about helping women in medicine break free from the golden handcuffs and get back their most precious commodity: Time.

In medicine we trade our time for money. No matter how much we love your work, or how well we are compensated, there will always be a ceiling as long as we are employees.

Developing multiple income streams outside of medicine is the best way to add layers of financial security and eventually create financial freedom for ourselves and our families. 

Dr Gardner recently added an 8th income stream when she discovered the significant earning potential of day-trading. She is now empowering a growing tribe of professional women to do the same. 

Most people will hope for ~10% annual returns on their investments. If you would rather see 10% monthly, or even 10% weekly growth, trading might be for you.

Whether you are looking for an exit strategy, wanting to build up a down payment for your first real estate investment, or simply looking for vacation money, come join us in our Women Building Wealth through Trading FB community so that you can find out if trading will be your next growth vehicle.

Janelle Wagner, MD

When I became an attending, I thought my only option when it came to managing my finances was handing the reins over to a financial adviser.  It never occurred to me that there could be another way. 

One day I watched a webinar on how to learn options trading.  I had no clue what they were talking about, but I was hooked!  I dove into all things options, stocks and world capital markets.  I learned how to properly understand my investments—it was eye opening!  Turns out my investments were under performing, but my adviser was getting paid well— so well, in fact, that he made more off of my money than I did!  

Learning about personal finance and mastering my money has been surprisingly fun, and it’s helped me to release money anxiety and become a confident investor.  My goal with Money Med School to impart this sense of financial wellness to my fellow physicians, because financial wellness is key to overall wellness, and healthy physicians make medicine better for everyone.

At Money Med School we put the F-Yeah! in finance, with a different approach to money— it’s fun, it’s abundant, and it’s totally do-able.  In other words, F-Yeah!

P.S. If you’re wondering about my other career, I graduated from SUNY Downstate College of Medicine, completed General Surgery residency at Temple University Hospital, Plastic Surgery residency at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Hand and Microsurgery fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis.
