About me

The BAsics

I'm a licensed Naturopathic Doctor, Certified Prolotherapist, faculty member at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition and a Diabetes Prevention Health Coach with Blue Mesa Health.  I obtained my Bachelor of Science from the University of Guelph in 2002 and completed my post-graduate studies at The Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in 2011. Previously, I served as the Wellness Director at the Chopra Yoga Centre in Vancouver.  

I'm passionate about helping women feel their best simply because it's really fun for me. Maybe that's because I get it. 

As a woman who's undergone quite the transformation herself,  I can relate to the struggle that happens when old patterns, fatigue and harmful beliefs are completely at odds with how you actually want to live your life.  I used to eat chips for dinner, I abhorred exercise and I would have given up air for coffee most days. I feel sorry for anyone who ever suggested I meditate. 

Things are pretty different now!  It's on ongoing metamorphosis but I've come a long way. Taking good care of my body, mind and spirit is no longer a chore that I have to shoehorn into my daily routine.  Instead, it's an easy choice that I look forward to every day. If that sounds like something you'd like for yourself, then let's work together to get you there. 

My Philosophy

I believe health is so much more than what we can see, feel and measure in our physical forms.  Of course, it's important to keep our bodies strong, balanced, well-nourished and rested because they serve as containers for who and what we really are. But the essence of health lies much deeper. Your physical self doesn't need to be broken for your health to be suffering. 

Why I do what I do

In recent years I’ve been witnessing a shift in consciousness happening in my patients, my colleagues, my friends and certainly in myself. An awareness of the unlimited potential that exists in all of us is gaining traction. It’s exciting! Women are embracing their tremendous capacity, and perhaps responsibility, to effect important changes in themselves, their families and their communities. They are breaking free from prescribed notions of what it means to be a strong woman and redefining strength and femininity for themselves. 

I do what I do because I don’t want to be a passive participant in this shift in consciousness, I want to be a catalyst for it. 

The impact I aspire to have

My hope is that, together, we can learn to live deliberately and consciously such that our actions support our health and align with our purpose. I want to help women find their inspiration and become active creators of their own legacies.
