Acting as a learning mediator and coach, BA teaches in the following content areas: conflict management, leadership, feedback, cultural humility, emotional intelligence, educational administration, and health professions education. She questions assumptions and conclusions, assisting individuals in deepening their knowledge and understanding. Ultimately, her passion is to help others achieve their goals, which drives the majority of her work. In that quest, she has helped publish in the areas of teams in medicine, leadership in medicine, and other medical education topics such as coauthoring the book, Guide to Becoming a Physician. The text was written for premedical students and is incorporated into the curriculum at Baylor University with the purpose of encouraging critical thinking about the journey to becoming a physician. 

Her formal education consists of a bachelor of arts in psychology with a minor in sociology, a master of arts in industrial and organizational psychology, and a doctorate in educational administration (leadership) with a dissertation entitled “Conflict Management Education as a tool for Leadership Development in the Intensive Care Unit.”

In addition to Dr. White’s professional roles, she is active in her community, serving on the Board of Trustees for Salado Independent School District. And, she often says that she is married to medicine, as her husband is a physician leader in Temple, Texas. They share two children, JuliAnn and Preston, two puppies Boston and Fenway and a rescue cat named Kristoff.
