My approach to medicine.

I had a roundabout journey of discovering naturopathic medicine — through exposure as an EMT, a medical caseworker for refugees, and travels through Tanzania and Ecuador, I quickly realized the limitations of conventional medicine. What ultimately inspired me were my studies in public health in Ecuador, where I had the chance to discover how rural communities depend on certain herbs and plants for common ailments. I knew that health and wellness had to exist beyond just a diagnosis and pharmaceutical treatment. I wanted to know more and wanted to be involved in a type of medical care that treated a person instead of a disease, and focused on preventive care. So when my mother started seeing a naturopath and I had a chance to discuss my own questions with her ND, I felt like I had finally found a place in the medical field that I could truly stand behind.

As a mother of two I have a passion for helping parents and kids, but I love to treat the whole family, with a focus in digestive health and endocrinology (hormones).  I love having the opportunity to teach my patients how their bodies work, and how they can manage their own health and healing. I believe everyone deserves a chance to learn about their bodies and to understand their treatment options – this leads to greater self-care, empowerment, and wellness.

A little about me

Born and raised in BC, I’ve always loved exploring our local mountains and seaside. I have a large extended family and we are often gathered in a backyard for a potluck lunch or a glass of wine. As a result, community and good food are pretty important to me – and I’m convinced these things are integral to health & wellness. My incredibly supportive husband and I have a four year-old daughter and a one year-old son who keep us on our toes, consistently bringing us joy and teaching us patience.
