I have always had a passion for health and fitness and it was through this interest that I was exposed to the importance of whole food eating and the role that nutrition plays in achieving wellness.
The significant improvements in my own health as well as a quest for further knowledge motivated me to become a Holistic Nutritionist. It was during this time that I discovered Naturopathic medicine. The idea of a medical career centred around the promotion of optimal health and prevention of disease was very exciting to me.
In 2000, I ended a successful sales career to fulfill my passion of becoming a Naturopathic doctor. I enrolled at the Canadian School of Naturopathic Medicine and after 4 gruelling years of study and 2 rounds of licensing exams, I achieved my board certified Naturopathic doctor designation.
I have spent the last decade in private practice working to understand, assess and support people on their journey to optimal health and disease prevention. I have obtained additional training in acupuncture, detoxification techniques, perinatal care and stress management tools. My focus of care is centred around individualized nutrition support, women’s health issues, digestive concerns and mood challenges to name a few.
I have set my intention on expanding my knowledge and sharing this information through private practice, community talks, workshops and social media. I also strive to keep my own personal balance by spending time with my husband and daughter, practicing yoga and meditation, running, biking or trying out a new recipe.
