After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2011, I worked as a Registered Nurse (RN) for two and a half years before beginning my education in Naturopathic Medicine. I believe that there is a place for both Western and Eastern medicine in our healthcare system and believe that each person is the expert in how the combination of the two works best for them. As an RN I worked with vulnerable populations, with a focus on harm reduction and mental health. I also worked in the areas of sexual and reproductive health.
During my clinical year at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, Ontario, I was selected to be on the Fertility Health focus shift where I saw patients at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic (RSNC).
I am passionate about helping individuals in the areas of anxiety, depression and reproductive health (including fertility, sexual health, pregnancy and menstrual health). That being said, if your concern falls outside of these areas, please do not hesitate to contact me for a free 15-minute meet and greet. Naturopathic Doctors treat the whole body and very often, our different health conditions are all interrelated (mind, gut, skin, menstruation, sleep issues – each affects the others). If you just read that and are thinking “what does my digestive system have to do with my mind?” then it is definitely time you saw a Naturopathic Doctor!
I recently settled with my family in Hamilton, Ontario, in the east end, and am loving it! In my free time I try to get into nature as much as possible and learn more about anything and everything in my field (I especially love podcasts!). I also like to take nature photographs, slowly make meals and enjoy them with people I care about and see live music and theatre!
