As a leader in EM, Dr. Windsor prefers to use her experience and expertise by treating her patients, colleagues, and learners with an all-encompassing approach that focuses on wellness and mentorship. She believes that the teacher and learner should be supported from a point of physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness in order to provide patients and learners with the best quality experience. It is with her passion for positive psychology and her undergraduate degree in psychology that she was inspired to become the founding partner of Exxcel Partners, LLC; an organization that supports physician and healthcare wellness.

Rachel Kawakami

Director of Philanthropy

Rachel graduated from Grand Canyon University with a Bachelor's of Science in Biology. She is currently working towards her aspirations of becoming a physician.

Rachel found a passion for community service after being a titleholder
in the Miss America's Outstanding Teen program. Through that experience she was able to see the benefits in serving others. One of the aspects of community service that she enjoys most is the ability it has to bring people together to support and encourage each other. Though Rachel leads a busy life, she realizes that health and wellness are vital aspects to function at her best. Her philosophies of overall health and wellness includes a balance of mental, physical, and spiritual health, which is why she believes in L.I.F.E. and what it has to
offer.

Kris Yamano

Director of Development

Kris earned her B.A. from UCLA and her J.D. / M.B.A. from Chapman University and currently serves as Arizona Market Leader for BMO Private Bank. In her role, she leads a team of professionals dedicated to providing high-net-worth families, closely-held businesses, and charitable organizations with a full range of customized wealth services including investment management, private banking, trust & estate services and comprehensive wealth planning. 9Prior to working in wealth management, she spent nearly a decade in public accounting – and focused a considerable amount of her practice on philanthropy and helping non-profits navigate the complexities of compliance regulations and requirements. 

 

It was during her time in public accounting that Kris discovered the importance of self-care and balancing your physical, mental and emotional well-being.  Running on fumes and exhausted, she came home in the midst of a typical 80+ hour work week to find her daughter sick with fever and pneumonia. In that moment, she realized not only how precious and precarious life can be, but also how burnout can keep you from being truly present in your own life. She immediately committed to taking better care of herself and her family going forward, and believes whole-heartedly that being the best version of ourselves requires an intentional focus on self-care. She knows that finding the time and energy to deal with life’s many stressors isn’t always easy, and loves the resources that L.I.F.E. brings to anyone that needs support in building those skills.

 

Thankful for opportunities to support her own community, Kris currently serves on the Board of Trustees for the Arizona Center for Nature Conservation (Phoenix Zoo) and chairs the Financial Development Committee. She is also an Executive Committee Member of the Board of Directors for the Arizona Council on Economic Education and a member of the United Way’s Women United. In the past, Kris has served as a volunteer advocate for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) where she championed the safety and well-being of a child who was a victim of parental abuse and neglect in the dependency court system.
