About Erik Engberg

After earning a Bachelor’s degree from Cornell University in Human Development and Family Studies and a Master’s degree from Syracuse in Marriage and Family Counseling, I began what would become a thirty-year career in leadership.

I have built a resume in healthcare leadership, including serving in such roles as the Area Vice-President of Managed and Joint Venture Operations for Mariner Health.

In addition to Mindful Solutions, I also found entrepreneurial success as a partner with Everest Health Systems who managed the operations of over ninety nursing facilities with annual revenues in excess of $200 million.

More Recently,

I worked with Healthways, an international leader in the provision of wellbeing services.  Thanks to the collaborative spirit of my Healthways colleagues,

I was fortunate enough to have shared in several company achievement awards, including those recognizing process excellence and innovation.

While at Healthways, my direct team of leaders was recognized for scoring in the top tier of high performing teams across organizations that Gallup surveys for colleague engagement.



I live in Cary, within the Triangle area of North Carolina, and am the very proud father of my daughter Larsen who is a senior at High Point University and my son Jaryd who works for a media solutions company in the Washington, DC area.

My vices include peanut butter cup gelato, Monty Python, jazz piano playlists and the New York Times on Sundays, the Steelers/Penguins/Pirates, hushpuppies and butter, Exile on Main St., Ansel Adams photography, Coke in a glass bottle and the Tar Heel Pentathlon.

My limitations are mostly self-imposed and my strengths are growing (despite physical signs to the contrary).

Although I’m not bound by fantasies of fate, hope or destiny, I’m pretty sure we’re not alone in the cosmos.

And finally, my passion is to reduce the suffering of others so we can all enjoy each moment to the absolute fullest.
