It wasn’t until my 8th year of post-secondary school that I really knew what I wanted to do, meaning I took 12 years of post-secondary!

We strive to keep patients happy & help them feel better than when they first came in the clinic.
What is one thing you’d like people to know about Naturopathic Medicine?
It is work, there is no magic pill and to get better takes following our guidance. At the end of the day, it is the patient who is ultimately in control of their health and we are just there to guide them on this journey.
Tell us one thing you do daily to stay healthy
No processed foods, most of what we eat is made from scratch. This takes a lot of time to prepare and cook a good meal, but it is worth it. I usually spend 1 – 1.5 hours every day on our family meals.
What is one thing about living in Edmonton that makes it unique?
I love my bike ride to work in the summer. I find it relaxing as it is through the trails with a couple of nice hills to give me a challenge.
What is YOUR super power?
In school I was known as a combination of Macgyver and Martha Stewart, as I could fix or construction almost anything from scrap parts.
My philosophy is to treat every patient as a unique individual in order to design a treatment plan that will be most suited to their needs.
