I became a Doctor because of my passion for helping people, healing and teaching; and I believe Naturopathic Medicine is the best way to achieve those goals.I maintain that the essence of being a good doctor is to focus on the fundamentals.
– Listening and taking the time to connect with each patient
– Making or clarifying diagnoses by looking at ALL of your symptoms, labs, physical exams and personal/family history
– Putting a heavy focus on lifestyle, nutrition, digestion, sleep, mental health and disease prevention
– Collaborating with your existing healthcare team to provide a truly integrative approach
I believe that you deserve someone who takes the time to listen, puts the time into helping you and is always open to trying new things if past treatments aren’t working.
I received my honours Bachelor of Science (ENV) degree from the University of Guelph where I majored in Ecology. I then went on to the four-year post-graduate program at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine to achieve my Doctor of Naturopathy degree. Upon graduation, I was honoured to be awarded the prestigious Joyce Vanderburgh Scholarship for demonstrating outstanding clinical performance and patient interaction. During my internship year, I gained additional experience on the competitive Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome focus shift.
