                                   Your health in your hands

Hello, and welcome to my personal biography!

Let Me Tell You About My Professional Experience:

 I am a Naturopathic Doctor at the Durham Natural Health Centre in Pickering, Ontario. I love research and am active at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) as a Clinic Supervisor and Teaching Advisor.

I received my Honours Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry & Biomedical Science from McMaster University. My degree focused on understanding how the body works and how to critically appraise medical literature. In my fourth year, I worked under Dr Joseph Macri at Hamilton General Hospital studying proteomics (or “how proteins behave in the body”) and cardiovascular disease. My passion for health led me to complete four years at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine followed by a two-year Clinical Residency. During my residency, I completed research in the management of Inflammatory Bowel Disease in a clinical setting.

I have worked at Anishnawbe Health Toronto, Sherbourne Health Centre and Brampton Civic Hospital. I also have extra training in pediatric care and intravenous therapy. I have been published in Naturopathic Currents and was featured in the magazine, Mind Body Spirit.

I am board certified, in good standing with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario and have prescribing rights.

My Values & Beliefs

My motto “Your health in your hands” means just that to me.

Empowerment

I want you to feel empowered in your health journey.

Symptoms and Results

I want you to fully understand the importance of your symptoms and test results.

Complete Involvement

I want you to ask questions, to understand your options and to feel confident in your treatment plan.

Working Together

I work with you to create solutions suited to your daily life.

My Personal Philosophy

I became a Naturopathic Doctor to help people understand their health and support them in making the best decisions for themselves and families. I believe you deserve a health care team that has the knowledge to advise you and compassion to listen and understand

I practice with integrity. I will be transparent with expectations, treatment options and cost. I also recognize my limitations. I believe you get the best care when everyone plays to their strengths. I am happy to work with your health care professionals and refer when you require expertise outside my scope of practice.

Health is vital to our happiness and identity. I will support you to successfully achieve your health goals and find your path back to wellness and your authentic self.
