Professional background

I received my Honors Bachelor of Science degree with specialisation in Biochimie (Biochemistry) from the University of Ottawa and had the chance to participate in cellular cancer research through the Children’s Hospital of Northern Ontario. It was this experience that sparked my general interest in healthcare. During this time I discovered Naturopathic medicine while managing my own health concerns and was introduced to the world of complimentary medicine and its role in helping prevent and manage chronic disease.

 

This led me to Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (one of 2 accredited Naturopathic colleges in Canada) where I completed a 4 year program focusing on modalities such as Traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, clinical nutrition, herbal medicine and supplements among others.

I am currently registered and licensed to practice in Ontario under the College of Naturopaths of Ontario and am also a member of the Canadian and Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors.   

I believe good health is not an end goal to work towards but the sum of all the little things you do regularly from day to day. It can start now. 

There is no such thing as a one treatment fits all. I focus on individualized treatment plans for you and your family specific to your health concerns. Working with you to make sure they are realistic and attainable.
