Janeane speaks with Zachary Faerber, a Trauma Consultant with Arthrex, about loss, resilience, and finding your passions in life

My name is Zachary Faerber, I am 26 years old but have lived a long life in those 26 years. I spent my younger years taking care of my sick parents and helping out with my brother and sister. I graduated with honors and distinctions in Medical Anthropology with the life goal of helping others. I started my career managing stem cell donations for blood cancer patients at the same hospital my father passed away at. I now work as an Orthopedic Device Consultant, helping surgeons through difficult surgical procedures. I also have a fitness and lifestyle coaching business in the hopes to maximize the amount of people I can help. I have always been drawn to doing and being MORE for the people around me, my hope is my story can inspire the same for anyone listening.

It is worth mentioning that during this incredibly unconventional time, life is spinning out of control for so many people. I loved being able to come onto this podcast and share how I choose to keep myself sane during the COVID pandemic. The key is keeping to a routine and shifting your mindset. Realize all the things you can be grateful for and go out every day in an attempt to make the world a better place.

Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or if you feel there is anything I can do to help!
