Are you a female pediatrician who’s ready to take her practice, relationships, and LIFE to the next level?
Join our unique conference to spend time reconnecting to your WHY, fostering bonds with women who share your dreams, and filling your cup in a relaxing and fun environment.
What to Expect
Our retreat is a perfect combination of engaging plenary sessions, expertly curated group activities, and top-notch 1:1 consultations. Of course, we’ve included plenty of flexibility to craft your own schedule so you’ll still have time to lounge by the pool, indulge in a spa treatment, or check out the local shopping scene, too. We’ve curated activities to meet everyone’s needs (practice management, personal development, and just plain fun). You’ll even have one night to design your own evening (or participate in our scheduled beach event). The event is all-inclusive – all listed meals and activities are included in the registration fee.
We’ve added an extra day for you to plan time with our consultants for 1:1 and group sessions. Choose from practice management topics like establishing your practice culture, reviewing and setting your prices, or managing staff or opt for an enrichment activity like an art, journaling, or meditation class. We’ll also have small group sessions for mental, women’s, and financial health topics, too.
With topics like leadership, limiting beliefs, women’s health, and self-care, our engaging plenary speakers will move you with personal stories and practical advice to motivate you to get closer to your goals.
Networking & Fun!
From wardrobe makeovers to wine tasting and charcuterie board classes, you’ll find plenty of options to fill your schedule. Want to catch some rays? Grab a spot by the resort pool or hop on our free shuttle to the famous Flora-Bama Friday afternoon. Of course, we have a few parties planned for you, too, and we’re pulling out a few new stops as well!
Full day of 1:1 meetings, group sessions, and R&R with a kick-off social event that evening!
Friday & Saturday
Morning plenary lectures and mastermind groups and afternoon enrichment or relaxation (build your own schedule).
1:1 and group sessions in the morning and a farewell jazz brunch as the finishing touch for the weekend.

This was an amazing few days! It really helped me to find my center again — haven’t seen it for a long time!

Can I bring my family to this retreat?

To encourage bonding and networking among our attendees, all retreat events and social functions are limited to registered attendees and vendors only.

Who is this conference for?
Our conference is designed with female pediatricians in mind, especially those who are looking to become better leaders, make more meaningful connections, and discover their ultimate why.
I don’t know anyone else who is attending. Should I still attend?
Absolutely! Many women have attended our previous events without knowing anyone beforehand. We guarantee you won’t leave without making new friends, though!
I’m flying in. Which airport is best?
We recommend that you check out flights into MOB or PNS. The hotel offers a shuttle to and from both regional airports and they are equidistant from the hotel.
