Colonel Dr. Roxanne Wallace serves to heal. She’s an Orthopedic Surgeon serving in the United States Army. Dr. Rox is also a Renegade Accelerator graduate. She went through the program while stationed in Afghanistan!

On this episode of Why Not Now?, Dr. Roxanne shares tactical tips with Amy Jo about leadership that she has learned in both the operating room and through her rank in the Army. Her number one tip for leaders of all industries? Be humble and kind. Dehumanizing any process will lead to trouble.

Dr. Wallace also explains some of her “Wallace-isms” that have become favorites among many of the women in the Renegade Collective. These include going from “furious to curious” to preserve relationships, how “gravity always wins” can relate to business, and “if I intimidate you, step up your game.”

Dr. Roxanne shares how she navigates working in a male dominated industry. She also shares two Why Not Now? moments, one involving her college decision and another about starting a family during her fourth year of medical school.
