129 Candid Conversations with Phenomenal Executive Women: Dr. Adaira Landry

Hello, beautiful listeners! This week, we have the honor of having a very informative and candid conversation with the absolutely phenomenal Adaira Landry.

Dr. Landry was raised in Rialto, California. While she had the love and support of her parents, she lacked mentorship and training on how to navigate the educational system and the workplace. Through her best efforts, in 2002, she attended University of California, Berkeley to study Molecular Cell Biology and African American Studies. She completed her medical school training at David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California, Los Angeles in 2011, her Emergency Medicine Residency at New York University as Chief Resident in 2015, and a combined fellowship in Ultrasound at the Department of Emergency Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and a master’s degree in Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education program in 2017.

Her academic interests focus on mentorship of underrepresented students and trainees. She speaks nationally on strategies to optimize mentor-mentee relationships.

Today she is also a wife and a mother to 3 children. She hopes to raise her 3 children to understand and value the importance of supporting others in need.

See you on the inside…
