About me

Thank you for visiting my website, I’m so glad you’re here.

My journey to optimal health began in January 2016 when I saw a Naturopathic Doctor for the first time. I was suffering from extreme fatigue, acne, and frequent illnesses. It was the first time that someone sat me down and explained to me that what I was feeling was not “normal.” In addition, I was told that if one of my body systems is not working well, others will be affected. This was news to me. It was the first time I had linked my digestive system to my immune health. I had spent 4 years of my undergraduate degree learning everything there is to know about the human body, yet we, students, were taught to think of body systems as separate, not connected.

 

Ever since this day I have made it a mission of mine to empower and educate others to not accept their symptoms as a new normal. I may not have all the answers, but I will make sure to work with you as a partner in your journey, and to advocate for you to get the results you need.

My practice is evidence-based. This means that I look to integrate the best available research evidence with my clinical expertise and most importantly, patient values. I believe every patient deserves to be informed so they can understand the benefits and harms of a given treatment plan. Whatever path you choose to decide, I will support you along your health journey.

I look forward to meeting you!

On the weekends, you can find me spending time with my husband and our new little puppy, Pebbles. She has brought so much energy and joy into our home. I also love to go for nature walks and read a good book in my reading chair! Recently my favourite reads have been "Untamed" by Glennon Doyle and "This Is Your Brain on Birth Control" by Sarah E. Hill.
