Margaret Dow, M.D.
Program and Curriculum Development, Coach + Consultant
Margaret is passionate about emphasizing individual talents and priorities to optimize health, well-being, and performance. She has spent the last two decades investigating how to build well-being as the scaffolding for personal and professional success. As a physician and educator at Mayo Clinic, she was introduced to coaching in 2015 after being charged with helping to design and implement a health coaching curriculum for medical students. She then began exploring how coaching could improve interpersonal relationships, job satisfaction, and performance for people in all industries, and became a certified Gallup CliftonStrengths coach, health coach, and yoga instructor. As a physician, she is board-certified in OBGYN and Obesity Medicine.
Margaret has published many peer-reviewed studies and has been an invited well-being speaker and workshop facilitator for national and international meetings, including The Obesity Society, Society of OBGYN Hospitalists, and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. She has held regional and national positions including Wellness Officer for the Mayo Clinic Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Chair of the Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology Wellbeing Task Force.
An avid learner and expert task switcher, she dabbles in art, paddle boarding, running, reading, cooking, and puppy snuggling while raising four children. She is currently the Chair of the BirthCenter at Olmsted Medical Center in Rochester, MN and the Chief of Research and Curriculum Development for BolsterUp.
