Writer & Investigator | Mental Health at Work, Burnout and Workaholism
Carol Miltersteiner, an advertising professional by training, worked for more than ten years in CRM & marketing, having developed strategies for some of the largest organisations in Latin America and Europe.
When her passion for work and external pressures evolved into workaholism, Carol ended up experiencing an emotional breakdown that led her to completely repurposing her relationship with work and with herself.
At the age of 27, at the worst of a Burnout episode, she was able to take a sabbatical, when she traveled alone through Chile and Europe on a journey of internal reconnection.
Today, she lives in the Netherlands and writes about mental health from her own experience with anxiety, depression and panic caused by Burnout.
Her purpose is to increase awareness of Burnout syndrome and inspire people to prioritise compassion as a tool for individual and social transformation.
