About Burnout Solutions & Beth Genly
I’m so glad you’re here! My name is Beth Genly. We’re a lot alike, you and me: we are completely dedicated both to our professions and to our families.
Yet that same fierce dedication may ultimately drive us right into burnout: physical, emotional and spiritual exhaustion. Burnout is miserable! I know, I’ve been there. I was in complete overwhelm. Exhaustion. Frustration. End-of-my-rope hopelessness.
So, I truly know: Burnout feels like failure. It feels almost impossible to talk about. It wrecks careers and relationships. When I went through burnout, I hid out at my desk, searching desperately for answers. Something that would help me, as an individual, get back to feeling engaged, productive, and connected.
That’s why, when I discovered there were four decades of medical studies about burnout, I worked with an expert friend to comb through it all. Then, when I knew we’d built that information into a system that would give you what you needed most, I co-founded Burnout Solutions. Our unique, science-based system helps you start feeling better, fast.
When you’re burned out, you need encouragement and support. You also need clear, effective strategies. At Burnout Solutions, I’ve got your back.
The Triple Threat Against Burnout
As a health care provider, educator, and entrepreneur, I’ve witnessed the devastating effects of burnout. I’ve seen it derail the careers of some of my best and brightest colleagues, students and patients. I’ve also experienced burnout firsthand, which is how I know it is possible to recover.
Burnout Solutions is a triple threat against burnout. With my professional background in business, medicine, and education, my advantage is my unique approach:
- Medical: I understand how and why we get vulnerable to burnout, and what to do to fix it.
- Educational: I make Burnout Solutions’ tools and methods understandable, fun, and immediately useful.
- Business: I understand the pressures faced by professionals and managers.
How Burnout Solutions Helps You
Are inspirational quotes on Facebook enough to lift you out of physical, emotional and spiritual exhaustion? Not likely, right? Does being asked to find “work-life balance” help you re-engage with your work or your family? Probably not so much, either.
Instead, I teach crucial skills, pulled from the latest research, to help you, a dedicated, hardworking professional, get back to having the space to breathe and grow in your life. We help you make “work-life balance” concrete, actionable, and productive.
I co-founded Burnout Solutions because there wasn’t anything like our system out there. Burnout Solutions’ unique approach is based on the latest research and best practices in engagement, productivity and connection. I can help you start recovering immediately, and then stay out of burnout, going forward.

Burnout Solutions’ Beth Genly
I am a popular speaker, workshop leader, and consultant. I’ve presented to international audiences on the topics of burnout and engagement, business, nutrition and health. I graduated from the women’s health program at Yale University and practiced as an RN and certified nurse-midwife (CNM) for over two decades. After working at Yale, I spent more than a decade of my healthcare career at OHSU in many roles: clinical practice, teaching, and clinical administration. In the business sphere, my audiences enthusiastically compliment my generosity of spirit and my ability to help people through life’s toughest yet most rewarding moments. I wrote Safety and Job Burnout, published in the American Society of Safety Engineers’ Wellness and Safety Report. I am a proud member of Toastmasters for Speaking Professionals, 5-time winner of the President’s Distinguished Club award. I’m married, and we have two absolutely amazing grown children. (Yes, you bet I’m proud of them!) Our tall and elegant dog, Venice, keeps me honest about meeting my commitment to walk every day.
A Special Thank You to Dr. Marnie Loomis, N.D.
In 2014, when chance brought me to meet Dr. Marnie Loomis at a Toastmasters for Speaking Professionals meeting, burnout took a knock-down punch! Burnout Solutions would frankly not have come to be without the brilliant collaboration of my dear friend and co-founder, Dr. Loomis, who was a principal developer of the Burnout Shield system. She also wrote the very first article published on our Burnout Shield system: Not Just a Personal Problem, Practitioner Burnout is a Public Health Issue, published in Holistic Primary Care.
Dr. Loomis is a naturopathic physician in private practice. As a speaker, she is well known for her witty and engaging style. She has been a natural medicine expert for television, radio and print news outlets and has presented scientific lectures and comedy shows on the topics of health and burnout since 2007. Dr. Loomis’s diverse resume includes business consultant, naturopathic primary care practice, managing editor for the Naturopathic Doctor News and Review (NDNR), departmental director for two college departments and instructor of several subjects at the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM).
