Theresa Melito-Conners, PhD: Dr. MC's Self-Care Cabaret. This is episode 552 of my audio podcast Teaching Learning Leading K12.

Theresa Melito-Conners, PhD (Dr. MC) is the founder of Dr. MC’s Self-Care Cabaret, a suite of theatre-inspired self-care and professional development services for helping professionals. The Self-Care Cabaret encompasses workshops, a podcast, and educational curricula — focused on accessible, realistic strategies that equip and empower. 

Dr. MC first recognized the need for such strategies in her early days as a special education administrator. She realized individuals in people-first, service-oriented roles often struggle with prioritizing self-care and work-life balance and lack resources. 

Curious, Dr. MC pursued her PhD in educational leadership from Lesley University, homing in on self-care and renewal for helping professionals. In addition to her doctorate and published research, Theresa is a licensed K-12 counselor with a Master of Education in school counseling from Salem State University and a B.A. in theatre studies from Emerson College. Her true joy is bringing her scholarship, experience, and zest to audiences of all kinds nationwide. 

Dr. MC has a growing social community @DrMCselfcare on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn and lives in Massachusetts.
