I received my Bachelor of Science from the University of Guelph which is where I had my “lightbulb moment”, the moment that pushed me to into naturopathic medicine. I remember sitting in the cafeteria at lunch going through CCNM’s program and thinking “this is amazing! This is what I have been searching for.” After graduating from the University of Guelph I moved to Toronto to continue my studies at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. There I pursued focused training in sports medicine, nutrition, traditional chinese medicine, acupuncture, and botanical medicine. During my 12-month clinical internship I was on the Sports Medicine and Pain Management specialty shift to further my understanding of athlete health and the health challenges it presents. I also successfully completed the training to become a Certified Sport’s Nutritionist.
I am a registered Naturopathic Doctor with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario. I am also a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors, the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, and the International Society of Sports Nutrition.
When not treating patients, I am often found running, drinking a cup (or several cups) of tea, and catching up on a bunch of my favourite podcasts.
