I'm excited that you are visiting my page! Let me introduce myself. My name is Dr. Lisa Herbert, aka The Balance Doctor. I am a mother, wife, family physician, certified personal and executive coach who just like you have struggled with balancing a demanding career and finding time for myself and my family. As the Founder and President of Just The Right Balance, LLC, I am passionate about helping you transform the way you think and approach life’s challenges so that you can achieve emotional and physical well-being as well as career satisfaction. Together, I will work with you to overcome the roadblocks and obstacles preventing you from reaching the fulfilled life and work you desire.


As a physician, I have helped clients manage and combat obesity and chronic illnesses as well as help them develop attainable wellness goals, deal with stress and work-life balance. During my time as a health care administrator, I developed effective communication programs, wellness services, health education material and also played a role in staff development, medical policy and utilization management. This background sets me apart from other coaches as my personal and professional journey bring real life experiences to my coaching as I have tackled work-life balance, career transition, experienced the challenges of working moms and women business owners. You can feel confident engaging me to guide you to a fulfilled, purpose driven life.


Five things about me that might surprise you:


  • I love the arts: To achieve balance, I love to dance, take yoga classes and attend dance theatre performances in the city. For the past 10 years I have taken classes in African Dance and Modern Dance and attended performances of Alvin Ailey and Dance Theatre of Harlem.

  • Favorite Food: My favorite food is chicken parmigiana.

  • Favorite Hobbies:  I love to travel and enjoys reading books in my spare time.

  • My biggest challenge:  Writing a book. Growing up I always loved to tell stories and was told in college that I should explore writing but never stepped up to the challenge. Now that passion has been reignited and my next goal is to write a book.

  • What I am passionate about: Teaching. As a 6th grader, I was chosen as a tutor for a young girl who was struggling with her grades. After tutoring her for 6 months, the student received top honors in her class. This was the catalyst for a life long passion of teaching and mentoring.



It would be a pleasure to guide you to achieve the results your desire. I'm confident once we begin partnering together you will be able to reach your goals. Let’s continue the conversation in the manner that suits you best.
