About Self-Care Travel

Lisa LaBrie is a nurse, educator, author and speaker focused on helping healthcare professionals learn to care for themselves in order to find joy and meaning in their lives.
I began my career in nursing in 2004, starting as a new graduate on a pediatric oncology and bone marrow transplant unit. In 2009, I moved to adult oncology and bone marrow transplant. In 2011, I helped build a new allogeneic bone marrow transplant program including designing an education program for the nursing staff. From there, I worked as the inpatient nursing educator. In 2014, I struggled to find balance and happiness with work and life. She was regularly exhausted and unsatisfied at work. I wavered between numbness and feeling overwhelmed by emotions. During that time I changed my role at work several times trying to find a solution. Eventually, I went back to school for a Master's in teaching and planned to leave the nursing profession. In 2017, when I graduated, I took a leave of absence and went to Europe.
Since that time, I realized that I was experiencing serious burnout and compassion fatigue. I spent a great deal of time working with a therapist, reconnecting with myself and my relationships, and realizing that so many others are struggling with the same issues in nursing. I now write and speaks about self-care for healthcare professionals.

Whether you work in a giving profession like healthcare or education, or whether you work in another field, Self-care Travel is committed to helping you take care of yourself so you can be the best version of yourself.

This Website

On this website, we will bring you strategiesĀ for you to take care of all five dimensions of self: the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and social. We will present options for a variety of budgets, this isn't a website about why you need to go to a day spa to relax, although we don't mind going to a day spa as one way to relax. We realize that self-care is something that is needed for everyone, not just those with extra money. We also will include new self-care that is founded on research and experience, and not product sponsorships (even though we may mention products we love). All articles and images belong to Selfcare Travel and cannot be reproduced without permission.
