“I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.”
~ Arthur Rubinstein
I truly love what I do! I am fortunate enough to have a job that allows me to use my creativity and knowledge every day to build individualized treatment plans for my patients. There is nothing more rewarding to me than helping my patients to achieve their health goals so they can live the lives they choose for themselves. To me, naturopathic medicine is all about freedom: freedom from illness, freedom from pain and the freedom to build your own health from the inside out. I have seen firsthand the amazing self-healing power of the human body. Once this process is set in motion it is almost impossible to stop the body from bringing itself back to health.
Before completing my four years of study and clinical internship at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of British Columbia where I focused my studies on nutrition, animal welfare, resource economics and traditional ecologic knowledge. At Boucher I studied a vast range of subjects including botanical medicine, nutritional therapy, traditional Chinese medicine, physical medicine, homeopathy and counseling. Having such a broad scope of practice enables me to combine all these treatment modalities to build treatment plans as unique as each of my patients.
To me, loving life means spending as much time as possible with my family puddle jumping and exploring the forests, rivers, boulders and mountains around our home. I also really enjoy cooking healthy meals, sewing, knitting and drawing.
