I have a special interest in integrative medicine, and I was thrilled to return to Kitsilano with my family! In my practice, my focus is on the whole person, uniting the best of conventional medicine with nutrition, movement, and other mind/body/spirit disciplines to support your unique balance and innate capacity to heal.
My academic career began at the University of British Columbia, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts with a focus on English Literature. I spent several years traveling and exploring my passion for theatre, and I also worked as a scuba diving and sailing instructor in the Caribbean.
I completed my medical residency training at the University of Washington, where I was recognized for excellence in family medicine and scholarly activities in evidence-based medicine. I also completed a two-year fellowship in integrative medicine through the University of Arizona’s Centre for Integrative Medicine.
During medical school, I co-founded International Integrators, a collaborative, global community dedicated to the promotion of integrative health. As part of International Integrators, I design and facilitate wellness retreats and seminars, in-person and online.
I have specialized training in plant-based nutrition and mindful movement, and I believe in a personalized, preventative approach to healthcare. I work with my patients to find the root cause of their symptoms and health concerns, engaging the healing power of community through group visits and collective experiences and promoting optimal health and well-being through connection with others.
